TANGLA, April 21: The Udalguri district court of Assistant Session Judge Roushan Lal sentenced two persons found guilty of human trafficking to a term of three years and six months in jail. The judgment was pronounced recently.
As per reports, the duo, identified as Bi Rabha and Benershi Das, were found involved in trafficking a girl from Tangla to Harya. The incident came to light when the All Bodo Women’s Welfare Federation spearheaded a movement against the human traffickers and lodged an FIR at Tangla police station.
The accused then underwent trial before the court of the Assistant Session Judge and the duo were charged under section 370/511 IPC r/w 34 of the IPC. However, the court released the other three co-accused for lack of sufficient evidence against them and they were acquitted of the charge.
The local court also further directed the Superintendent of Police to register a case against a Sub-Inspector, identified as Prabin Chandra Deka, in-charge investigating officer, for his alleged attempt to shield one of the suspects in the case.
