Dispur,Kohima order probe into Golaghat lathicharge

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and his Nagaland counterpart Neiphu Rio have ordered probe into the recent lathicharge in Golaghat by Nagaland armed forces. An apex Naga students body has also expressed grave concern over the action of Nagaland police personnel on demonstrators of All Assam Students Union in Golaghat district of the neighbouring state.

Condemning the police lathicharge Naga Students Federation has asserted that such attitude towards the peaceful demonstrators was totally an act of disrespect.

A statement issued by NSF said, the federation, therefore, invokes the conscious of the authority concerned and the police personnel to restrain from such unwanted situation especially towards our neighbouring state in order to avoid creating any misunderstanding as we are living in peaceful co-existence"

Extending its solidarity to the injured protesters and support towards the demand of the AASU, the NSF also urged upon the Nagaland government to seriously examine the incident and take up necessary action. Twenty five people, mostly, students were injured, some of them seriously, when IRB personnel of Nagaland police passing through Golaghat district unleashed baton charge on demonstrators who blocked the NH-39 on near Rangajan Tinali.
