KOKRAJHAR: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) in the Bodo Territorial Region (BTR) today held a press meet in Kokrajhar over the sensational news of the killing of two innocent youths as United Liberation for Bodoland (ULB) cadres on September 18.

The deceased have been identified as–Jwngsar Musahary, a resident of Salguri of Patgaon, and Janak Kumar Brahma, from Parbatjhara under Kokrajhar district.

They lost their lives in a police encounter in the Ultapani forest area, where the Kokrajhar unit of Assam Police has busted a newly formed militancy group ULB camp as per police information.

While Police have claimed that the two were cadres of ULB, the villagers and the militant group itself claimed that the youths were not their members.

Villagers called it a planned cold-blooded murder.

Addressing the press conference at the Congress building in Kokrajhar, BTR senior spokesperson of APCC and in-charge of BTR Congress  Co-ordination Committee Garjan Mushahary condemned the killing of the two innocent youth by the Assam Police in the name of ULB.

Mushahary also warned the Additional Superintendent of Police Surjit Singh Panesar over the killing of the two youths saying not to play with the Bodo people of the region.

He further demanded an apology for the killing of two innocent youths in the name of ULB.

Mushahary said, ” We can not trust the Kokrajhar Police Department, they killed innocent people in the name of an encounter.”
“If we can not trust on the police whom shall we trust on?, he asked


Speaking about the role of Pramod Boro, BTR chief’, Mushahary, stated that the people who made Boro win and brought him in power as the chief of the region now refuse to speak in fevour of them, Why Pramod Boro is not reacting to the matter. Is he scared of police?, he said.

Mushahary also said, ” We have lost faith on state Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma as well.”

The word “encounter” on CM Sarma’s face does not suit, he added.
