KOKRAJHAR, March 14: BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary blamed it on the NDFB and the BPPF led by Rabiram Narzary for the killing of four persons at Bengtol in Chirang district in police firing yesterday.
In a press meet today, Mohilary said: “The NDFB, BPPF and the BPFPR prevented the people of Bengtol from dismantling NDFB camps located there at gunpoint.”
When asked as to why the BPF Youth Wing has set up its camps, Mohilary said: “The camps are of ex-BLT, not of BPF Youth Wing. The camps are meant for welfare activities of the people. The NDFB has posed a threat to the ex-BLT members.”
Meanwhile, thousands of people from various districts bound for Bengtol in a large number of vehicles were stopped at various places today by the police so as to restore peace in the area. People in about 60 vehicles came to Bengtol via Kokrajhar.
