Karbi Anglong, Sept 18

Drawing the attention of Karbi Anglong Deputy Commissioner over the issue of threat to Rengmas of Karbi Anglong by Karbi Militants and non registration of FIR by Chokihola police station, the Rengma Naga People’s Council (RNPC) of Karbi Anglong district in a release today reiterated that even after the most heinous episode of 27th December 2013 where KPLT militants swooped down innocent Rengma villages resulting in 6 deaths and draining Rengma population in Assam, the threats by Karbi Militants continue to take place.  Restating the 12th September episode where 8 (eight) Rengma women on their way to Jongpha Mission Centre/Western Rengma Baptist Mission Centre under Chokihola PS, were intercepted by suspected Karbi militants and subjected to physical harassment for more than 2 hours at gun point, the release stated that the militants even acknowledged to have burnt down the houses of Rengmas on 27th Dec 2013.
Not satisfied the militants robbed the innocent women of their valuables including mobile phones. “Adding to this inhuman act, the Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Chokihola Police Station refused to file an FIR. He also objected to the written complaint which stated that the women were “thoroughly interrogated with gun point” stated the release issued by President RNPC Shahi Rengma and General Secretary K. Solomon Rengma.
“Because of this conduct by OC, the women complainants deleted this phrase and they were compelled to give the complaint as ‘information’ only. An FIR was not even considered necessary” added the release.
Condemning this attitude of the police which is mounting the insecurity of the Rengma people the Council demands for strong action against the OC of Chokihola Police Station further requested on the district administration to probe into the whole issue and also provide security at the earliest to the villagers.
