Civilian killing: AASU protest spills to roads

AASU activists in Sivasagar and Dibrugarh towns took huge protest programmes on Tuesday demanding a judicial probe into the killing of 65 year old civilian Dulen Baruah on April 14 at Moranhat by police, CRPF and SULFA man Tileswar Lahon.

In Sivasagar town thousands of people shouted anti government slogans in protest against the killing of the civilian at an operation led by Dibrugarh police superintendent Anurag Agarwalla. Speaking to assamtimes, the protesters alleged that SULFA Tileswar Lahon and Dibrugarh police superintendent who are directly responsible for the killing of Baruah have been evading arrest. .

They staged a demonstration in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office seeking an exemplary punishment for those involved in the incident. They also submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner of Sivasagar seeking compensation for Dulen Baruah’s family. AASU activists in Dibrugarh also took out a protest rally in the town on Tuesday.
