Exempt Garlosa, Hojai!

Around 500 people, mostly, Dimasa from North Cachar staged a huge dharna in Guwahati on Friday demanding exoneration of the former DHD (J) rebels whom a recent NIA court convicted in the infamous terror funding scam.

Raising the demand to exempt the former rebels, the protesters who represented twenty local organizations said violence will erupt in the hills district if Juel Garlosa and Niranjan Hojai are sentenced to life imprisonment.

Deepak Hafila, a protester said,” peace will be disturbed again in our district. We don’t want it to happen. Let them remain free.”

“Since they eschewed violence and came back to the national mainstream why should the duo be jailed again,” said Goju Hojai who joined the protest.

A recent NIA case sentenced the duo to life imprisonment in connection with the case where an astrological amount of money meant for thr welfare of the poor people was siphoned off with active help and help of officers and contractors and part of the amount reached the rebels to procure arms.
