SILCHAR, June 11: Assam University Students’ Union, Cachar, (AUSU), have urged upon the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar to look into matters related to safety and security of the students of the Varsity. The case of Trisha Roy Choudhury may have been solved, yet fear and apprehension lingers. They have addressed a letter to the Deputy Commissioner recently and have stated that another student Rupjyoti Das went missing form his rented room on May 19, 2017. Since then the student has not been seen or reported being found by the police either to the Varsity authorities or his family.

Such incidents expose the University’s safety and security provisions. They have mentioned that it is the responsibility of the authorities of the Varsity as well as the police to take up the matter with swiftness and urgency to arrive at an acceptable conclusion. A large number of cases related to thefts have also been brought to the notice of the local police outpost. But they seem less interested in pursuing such cases. As a result of this, some anti-social elements have started indulge in and continue with their evil practises. It is the students who are facing the brunt of the police’s iction.

The students of the Varsity have also requested the DC to ensure that proper police patrolling is done on the streets and lanes from Irongmara to Durgako so that the students feel secured and also such incidents are not repeated. The present officer in-charge of police outpost of the University does not show interest in the problems of the students and locals. It has been requested by the students and the members of AUSU that the safety and security of the students of Assam University does not get compromised once again. A copy of the letter which has been signed by Kajal Chandra Das, general secretary, AUSU, has been sent to the Superintendent of Police, Cachar.
