Silchar, May 28: “Assam Police has no problem or objection in the reming of Silchar Railway Station as Bhasha Shaheed Station. We were asked by the state government to submit a report on this matter. We cleared the air and informed that it would be an excellent idea to reme it in the me of the 11 martyrs who laid down their lives for the sake of protection of Bengali language on May 19, 1961. We are hopeful that no one will have any problem with it,” said Pallab Bhattacharjee, IPS, chief, Intelligence Bureau, Assam Police, addressing a packed Hasi Khushi Community Hall of this town on Saturday.
Addressing the huge gathering as a chief-guest at the function organized by Sochetan garik Mancha, Pallab Bhattacharjee further said, “The backbone of the Maoists has been broken and soon they will be surrendering to Assam Police. But the problem lies in dealing with Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) cadres who are dangerous and can create terror and pose as a threat to peace and security of the state. They are hiding in both Barak and Brahmaputra Valleys. One JMB cadre Jahirul was also arrested from the soil of this valley by Kolkata Police. This problem has to be addressed and mitigated at the earliest.”
“These JMB cadres,” continued Pallab Bhattacharjee, “can create terror anywhere in Assam, Delhi or Mumbai. So, it is not only the responsibility of the police, but also the citizens to overpower and overthrow them. People should be aware and alert in order to fight them out.” He further pointed out that Assam Police should be well aware of these Bangladesh-based terrorists. It should be mentioned here that JMB is a Bangladesh based Islamic terrorist organization which was founded in the year 1998 in the month on April in Palampur in Dhaka division by Abdur Rahman. The government of Bangladesh had already banned JMB in 2005.
“garik Mancha Asom is a non profit, non governmental organization and this programme is being conducted due to their cooperation and initiative. Through this platform, police and citizens will be able to be in touch,” he added to say. Rakesh Roushan, IPS, Superintendent of Police, Cachar, said, “Citizens should feel free to contact police or visit their nearby police station in case of any emergency or problem. We will see that the evil of eve-teasing is rooted out. Direct action will be taken against the culprits.” The function was presided over by Chandan Bhattacharjee, president of the organization and graced by the presence of poet and senior jourlist Atin Das.
