Last homage paid to Pranjal Saikia


Hundreds of people on Wednesday evening poured into Pranjal’s home to bid a tearful adieu to the braveheart Pranjal Saikia, who laid down his life at Tongona village under Kakopathar P S fighting militants in March 15 was consigned to flame with full state honour at his native village Dighaliati under Raha Police Station.


People crowded at Pranjal’s home soon after the 30 year old Police Sub-Inspector wrapped in the tricolor was received by family members. Tears rent the air as the last journey of Pranjal started from his house in nearby creamation ground around 7.35 p.m. The brother of the martyr lit the pyre.


Along with grief stricken family members ,friends,colleagues,strangers and common people broke down as the 30 year old Pranjal’s inconsolable mother sat close to his body caressing her son repeatedly touching his forehead. Several organizations of Raha also offered floral tribute to Pranjal. Police personnel of Raha Police Station including i/c Arun Kr. Bora were also present in the creamation site.


Born in 1981 at Dighaliati village of Raha Pranjal was the second son of retired school teacher Jhulan Saikia. He had joined the Assam Police in 2008 and was loved by all for his amiable nature.

May god punish them whoever is responsible for the murder of pranjal saikia. he was nothing more than a govt. official like lakhs of others. He was obeying the govt. order/duty only. Govt. must take the responsibility for his death . not only by some so called show-off tributes. Can govt. bring back the beloved son or brother of that family to life? Govt. must have to compensate the death of that young brave soldier. why only the police and defense personals only have to fight & die. why not the criminal ministers and bureaucrats? whereas these criminals are digesting money of the country by corruption. May god end this bloody gun fight and death of Assamese youth. Every death is a scare to the heart of the mother. Assamese sensitive common men will remember brave officer Pranjal saikia for his sacrifice.
