Fathers of youths lynched by mob demand SIT probe


GUWAHATI:  The fathers of Nilotpol Das and Abhijeet Nath, the two youths from Guwahati who were lynched by a mob at Panjuri under Dokmoka police station in Karbi Anglong on June 8 last, on Tuesday submitted written request to Assam Chief Minister, Sarbananda Sonowal for constitution of a special investigation team (SIT) led by a competent high-ranking police officer to probe the case so that the culprits could be brought to the book expeditiously.

Abhjieet’s father Ajit Kumar Nath and Nilotpal’s father Gopal Chandra Das met the chief minister at his office at the state capital complex here.

The chief minister assured that all measures have been taken so that culprits receive maximum punishment accorded for the crime and no loopholes would be left in the investigation for the perpetrators to escape as the SIT under a DSP has already been constituted for the case.

“Because of the swift action of Assam Police almost all the accused are nabbed in a short period of time and subsequently, the Chief Justice of Gauhati High Court would be requested to facilitate the trial in Fast Track court for speedy justice delivery,” Sonowal informed.

The chief minister stated that he was personally monitoring the progress of the case as the crime has tarnished the image of the state and he has also directed the police for consulting an expert criminal lawyer while preparing the charge-sheet of the case so that technical loopholes do not remain through which the criminals can escape.

The fathers of the two slain youths requested that a competent and experienced police officer of higher rank must be in-charge of the SIT and they said that in 21st century such barbaric incidents due to superstitions must not be allowed to take place.
