‘PDCK poses threat to Hindi and Bengali-speaking people’

From a Correspondent

Bokajan, Jan 23: With the State gearing for the 68th Republic Day celebration, security measures have been beefed up along the Assam-galand inter-State border following threats issued by insurgent groups which are likely to carry out disruptive activities in the run-up to Republic Day.

The Khatkhati Police have intensified security measures along the border and are maintaining extra vigil, besides conducting random frisking and checking vehicular movement along all roads leading to the bordering State of galand.

“Our personnel are working round-the-clock and are keeping a close watch on the movement of people and vehicles along the border. We have alerted the VDPs and have also installed various check posts in the sensitive areas to ensure safety of the people and to flush out any terror activity planned to disrupt the Republic Day celebration across the State,” said OC Dipak Bora.

The newly-floated militant outfit PDCK is of late posing as a severe threat to the Hindi and Bengali-speaking people of the hill district. PDCK along with KLO (Kamatapur Liberation Organization) and NLFT (tiol Liberation Front of Twipra) have issued a joint ultimatum to the Hindi and Bengali speaking people to quit Karbi Anglong, Dima Hasao, Kamatapur and Tripura by March 31, 2017.

PDCK has gained the patroge of SS Khaplang-led NSCN (K) and Paresh Baruah-led ULFA (I). PDCK is also affiliated to UNLFWSEA - a conglomerate organization of South-East Asian militant outfits which carried the ambush along the Assam-Aruchal-Myanmar border at Jagun in Tinsukia district on Sunday morning.

Fear has gripped the Hindi and Bengali-speaking people. It is now being speculated that the PDCK militants are plotting some serious attack on the Hindi and Bengali pockets of the hill district. More than 60 Hindi-speaking people were killed by militants in Karbi Anglong district between 2000 and 2009. The KLNLF militants killed over 40 Hindi-speaking people after serving a quit notice back in 2008.
