Immediate arrest and legal action against all the culprits involved in the kidnapping and brutal killing of Swapan Paul, son of late Rasaraj Paul of Langting. Besides this inhuman killing, the victim incurred a heavy loss of his valuables. This loss should be compassionate by the Government. Similar antisocial activities were happening in the different parts of Dima Hasao leading a sense of panic and insecurity among the people in general. Hence due steps should be taken by the district administration to bring back peace and normalcy in the district.
