Stunned by the failure to nab Gopinath Das, the authority has transferred two police officers two days before the date scheduled for filing case diary before the Gauhati High Court. They are Nagarbera Police Station OC Bhaben Chandra Nath and Mandia police outpost head Amiyo Goswami who have failed to ensure the arrest of the AIUDF MLA in connection with the rape case registered against Boko MLA.

They were transferred hours after police arrested three brothers-in-laws  alleging that they kidnapped the victim and her parents on September 8 and forcing them to sign bond papers in an undisclosed location.

Natwar Thakkar lauds Indian Civil Society Groups

3 Sep 2011 - 2:49pm | Nava Thakuria

Gandhian Natwar Thakkar appreciates the civil society groups, which render voluntary and self-less service to the society and argues that presence of a strong civil society has enriched the Indian democracy. Attending the ‘Guest of the Month’ program of Guwahati Press Club today (September 2) afternoon, Thakkar even argues that the forum comprising the spirit of voluntary social service should be recognised as the fifth pillar of democracy.

Thakkar, 79, expresses his satisfaction over the service of local media in the country. He declared that the regional and local media in the Northeast has played an important role and many times it has helped the local habitants to get due justice.

Thakkar has great admiration to Anna Hazare and he asserted that Annaji’s movement against corruption has historic importance. The people of the country have found a leader in Anna Hazare to speak for an issue they were expecting for listening and even joining one and all. Thakkar believes that Anna’s fast at Jantar Mantar was itself a successful attempt as he made the entire population aware of corruption and the government also showed interest to resolve the issue. Of course, Thakkar had some reservations on the second phase of fasting at Ramlila Maidan.

Before the interaction starts, members of the press club felicitated Thakkar with the traditional Japi and Gamosa.

He further urged his fellows not to take resort to self immolation adding that the entire episode is a conspiracy by chief minister Tarun Gogoi, who thinks only of the Lok Sabha polls and not the common people.
