GUWAHATI, July 6: Dulal Bora, businessman and one-time close friend of State Social Minister Akon Bora who had alleged that the minister was involved in the Jugdol murder case, has now claimed that his life was under threat.
Addressing a press conference in Guwahati today, Bora said, “After receiving threats in January this year, I had registered a case at the Basistha police station (13/2012). Again on June 19, four youths made me sign on a blank paper on gunpoint. I again registered a case at the Basistha police station (419/2012). However, the Basistha police has not acted in both the cases. Now I have filed an RTI application to find out how far have the police progressed in both the cases. My life is under threat but the police have shown no concern.”
On December 12, 2009, six members of a poor family at Jugdol in Sonapur on the outskirts of Guwahati were bludgeoned to death by miscreants. Four persons were arrested in this connection – Mridul Bordoloi, Sapan Boro, Rupeshwar Garo and Arjun Bordoloi. While Mridul Bordoloi was let off after a jail term of three months, the other three were let off after 22 days in jail.
Dulal Bora had alleged that the murder plan was executed as per the instructions of Akon Bora.
