Judicial probe into Priya killing

A judicial enquiry will unearth the truth behind the killing of school girl Priya Basumatary by NDFB(S) militants who alleged her to be a police informer.

The government will officially write to the Gauhati High Court in the next few days.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Nilamani Sen Deka announced it in the assembly on Tuesday as the House discussed the incident.

Deka said, “the judicial probe into the killing of Priya Basumatary by NDFB(S) militants. The enquiry will look into all the related aspects of the murder.”

On August 20, five NDFB(S) terrorists were killed at Dwimuguri in Chirang district in an encounter by a joint team of Assam Police and Army.

Following this, a group of NDFB(S) militants came to the village the same evening from the adjoining dense jungles of Chirang Reserve Forest and dragged out Basumatary from her house and shot her dead in front of her parents and villagers accusing her to be informer.
