Campaign by media on killing of Babul Rongmei condemned

SILCHAR, July 11: The Hmar Students' Association (HSA) in a statement issuedtoday has strongly deplored and condemned the attempted vilification and smear campaign unleashed by several dailies against the backdrop of the unfortunate killing of Babul Rongmei, Chairman, Barak Valley Hill Tribes Development Council. The report that this killing was a pre-meditated plan so as to shift the blame for the murder on Rongmei Nagas is highly objectionable and despicable.
The students' body smells a deep-rooted conspiracy to malign the image of the Hmar people and would like to question these dailies where they received such baseless report. Moreover, the name of the alleged killer mentioned as Blinkson Hmar is fictitious and fabricated. Such communal overtone and attempted smear campaign against the Hmar community is totally uncalled for and hence condemnable.
On the contrary they have urged the Government of Assam to conduct an impartial inquiry to find out the real culprit behind this dastardly killing.
The students' body deeply mourns thedemise of Babul Rongmei and offer their heartfelt condolence to his near and dear ones. However, they have also urged those dailies not to publishsuch baseless allegation for the sake of peace and tranquility among the various ethnic groups in Barak Valley region. (SentinelAssam)
