GUWAHATI, Aug 25: The AGP and the Asomiya Yuva Mancha (AYM) have reacted sharply to the incident of traders attacking a section of surrendered ULFA members in gaon recently. The AGP condemned the incident and demanded an inquiry into the incident, besides exemplary punishment to the guilty. “Such attacks on the indigenous people of the State can’t be tolerated. This is an ominous sigl for the indigenous people of the State,” the AGP said in a statement issued to the press on Friday. The AYM also condemned the attack on some SULFA men who, it says, were on a drive to raise funds for flood relief. AYM secretary general Jitul Deka said: “Besides bashing the SULFA men up by the traders, they were taken to the police station where the police also bashed them up in the me of interrogation. Even after 16 hours, the police didn’t take any step for treatment of the injured persons. This is a clear violation of human rights. We’re set to lodge a complaint with the Assam State Human Rights Commission.” The Mancha took stock of the condition of Mon Bora who is under treatment at the GMCH in the city.
