Parag Kumar Das Verdict: Citizens’ plea for SIT under High Cour

A citizens’ meet at Guwahati Press Club on Friday called upon the people of Assam to write letters in the form of an appeal to the Chief Justice, Gauhati High Court to constitute a special investigation team (SIT) to go into the Parag Kumar Das murder and find out the culprit. The meeting, organized by the Journalists’ Forum, Assam (JFA) and presided over by JFA president Rupam Baruah, also requested the letter-writers to appeal to the Chief Justice to consider their letters as public interest litigation. The citizens urged the High Court to monitor the SIT probe, keeping in view the loopholes left by the CBI in its charge-sheet.

In yet another appeal, the well-attended meeting requested the people to hand over to the family of Parag Kumar Das any conclusive or useful proof that could strengthen the case against the accused in a higher court. The meeting was addressed among others by advocates Santanu Bharali, Santanu Barthakur and S. K. Saharia, journalists Hiten Mahanta, Prakash Mahanta, Ranen Kumar Goswami, Nava Thakuria, Sabita Lahkar, Anupam Nath and Mukul Kalita and social workers Jayanta Gogoi and Jaharlal Saha.

I worked with Parag during 1986-87 time frame. He was such a nice gentlemen and I am sure he cannot think of anything negative about any body. Parag was a Patriotic person and for that he paid dearly by his life. By this he attained martyrdom. May his soul rest in peace. The killers should be punished for what they did.
