"Statements are not enough" Dilip Paul demands action on Tinsukia killing; urges for a 25 lakh compensation
After five innocent Bengalis were brutally murdered in Tinsukia yesterday, the member of legislative assembly from Silchar constituency Dilip Paul, today, condemned the incident and termed it ‘barbaric’.
Paul reminded Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal that he has taken an oath to uphold the constitution (Rajdharma palon koribo laage) and asked him to take strict action against those involved in the heinous act.
The MLA has also mentioned that he would reach out to minister of home affairs Rajnath Singh, “I will tell him that these statements are not enough and action needs to be taken,” Paul says. The five murdered yesterday are identified as Shyamlal Biswas, Ananta Biswas, Abhinash Biswas, Shubol Biswas and Dhananjay Namashudra. Paul has urged the government to compensate each and every family with a compensation of Rs 25 lakh each.
It is widely speculated that United Liberal Front of Assam’s (ULFA) Independent militants are involved in the carnage last night. However, ULFA today issued a statement separating itself from yesterday’s incident. Chief minister Sonowal has already ordered a probe and Assam police is investigating the matter.
