GUWAHATI, Feb 11: The National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB) has condemned a section of the press for accusing the organization of being involved in the abduction of one Dipak Sikaria, a businessman from Baksa district.
The NDFB, through a press release, has said that it is under a ceasefire agreement with the Government of India and that the statement of the Superintendent of Police, Baksa district, PK Dutta, accusing the organization of being involved in the abduction is “false, baseless and without substance”.
The organization clearly stated that it was not behind the abduction of Sikaria. However, it has condemned the act and appealed to the miscreants to “refrain from such activities”. It also made an appeal to PK Dutta, Baksa SP, not to blame everybody for any incident without a proper inquiry.
On the other hand, the NDFB has alleged that Assam Police, led by Dutta, and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel have been torturing and harassing the innocent people in the name of conducting operations in Boro villages. It further said that this only shows the incapability, inefficiency of the police and their “desperate attempt to camouflage their utter failure to maintain law and order in the region.
The organization vehemently criticised the police for arresting seven NDFB members from the NDFB Public Liaison Office, at Rupohi, and lodging a case against them without any proof. It has demanded the immediate unconditional release of the arrested members and has asked the Government to take action against the police personnel “working against the peace process”.
