Love, marriage then visa trouble

Everything is going hunky dory after she was married to Aboni Koch. She got his love, emotion and what not. Yes, we are talking of Shailey who is landing in trouble. Trouble brews not because of Aboni whom she married after falling in love through the Facebook. The real story is different.

The Germany girl came to India with her visa which is expiring by this month-end. After landing in the Indian state of Assam she formally got married to Aboni on May 16, who is by profession a watchman.

Caught in utter confusion, the newly wed couple have been moving police and court to help them extend the visa period to enable the German lady to stay back in Assam.

“Trouble awaits her if she fails to extend the visa period. But she and her new family members have been sparing no pain to get the visa period extended,” said a local resident in Barpathar area where the family houses.   

When moved with relevant document, the Golaghat superintendent of police has assured them of help to ensure extension of the visa period.

Talking to Assam Times, additional SP Numal Mahato said "from our side we are trying our best to provide all possible help and yet we are bound to act according to the law."

There seems to be no respite for Gopinath Das as the Gauhati High Court rejected an anticipatory bail petition for the Boko AIUDF MLA in connection with the minor domestic help case. The court, however, asked police to submit the case diary required in the next hearing slated for September 22. On the other hand, police have been carrying out raids in a number of places in search of the MLA who has been absconding.

PPFA bats for preserving Netaji’s INA headquarter in Yangon

7 Dec 2018 - 9:28am | AT News

Guwahati: As President of India, Ram Nath Kovind sets to visit Myanmar next week, an Assam based patriotic citizens’ forum appeals to the Head of the State for pursuing his counterpart in NayPyiTaw to preserve all monuments relating to India’s glorious freedom struggle including the INA (Azad Hind Fauj) headquarter in Yangon (formerly Rangoon) city.

It may be noted that President Kovind will arrive in the southeast Asian country on 10 December next with a five-day visit schedule. He is expected to visit NayPyiTaw as well as Yangon and meet with his host President U Win Myint and State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi. Several issues are on card for discussions and bilateral agreements are expected to be signed during the President’s visit to the neighbouring country.

Myanmar (earlier Burma) played an important role in India’s freedom movement where many legendary Indian leaders either took shelter or imprisoned there by the British colonial administration,” said Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA), in a statement adding that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose later shifted the Indian National Army’s head quarter to Rangoon and fought against the imperialist forces with its 40,000 valiant soldiers from the soil of Burma.

The forum of nationalists expressed apprehensions that rampant construction activities in various parts of Myanmar might have destroyed most of the historical ruins including the INA building in Yangon. So the PPFA urges President Kovind to discuss specially with Nobel laureate Suu Kyi, whose father General Aung San was a close friend of Netaji Subhas, for her personal initiative to preserve those Indian heritages scattered in Brahmadesh.
