DOOMDOOMA, Feb 7: Pro-talk ULFA leader Anup Chetia today made a sudden visit to ex-MLA Durga Bhumij’s house at Rupaisiding near here along with Prabal Neog. The visit has carried much significance in view of the fact that on the evening of February 3 last some miscreants claiming to be member of the Moran Tiger Force (MTF) indiscrimitely fired at the house of Durga Bhumij from an Indica car and immediately escaped from the spot. The Police later recovered six empty cartridges of 7.65 mm pistol from the spot. This incident drew massive repercussion among the people of tea-tribes community and they demonstrated in large numbers with lethal weapons in their hands on February 4 at headquarter township of Tinsukia besides resorting to road blockades at Makum and Doomdooma.

The district administration had a tough time to control the situation and had to engage Army at sensitive places as a precautiory measure. Anup Chetia told the media persons that he had come to Bhumij’s residence to have a first-hand study about the incident. He, however, appealed to all to maintain peace, harmony and tranquility. For that he had engaged Prabal Neog to organize an ethnic convention of all the ethnic groups of the district on February 15 next at Tinsukia or any other suitable place they considered to be appropriate. The representatives of ATTSA, AASA and NSUI were also present in today’s meet in the residence of EX-MLA Durga Bhumij.
