Barak Valley students demand justice for Pritam and his family

SILCHAR, July 21: In order to ensure justice for Pritam Bhattacharjee, the people of Barak Valley are preparing themselves to hit the streets in a more eloquent manner on Monday evening. The classmates and friends of Pritam today launched a new forum titled "Justice forPritam" to ensure justice for him and his family.
The newly formed forum today made an appeal to all sections of people of the valley to join the protest march on Monday evening that will start at 4.30 pm from Ranghirkhari.
Monojit Bhattacharjee, a student, who used to share the same room with Pritam at Guwahati, said "Pritam is a victim of the system." It was his opinion that Pritam's fate might also happen with any one. "It is high time to raise our voices to ensure the safety and security of passengers in thetrain, especially from the Northeast," he added. The core members of the forum informed that they would start a massive campaign byusing different platforms in order to bring justice for Pritam. "We will start signature campaign, demanding the CBI probe into the case," said a friend of Pritam. It is to be recalled that Pritam Bhattacharjee, son of Sankar Bhattacharjee,a resident of Silchar, while travelling from Guwahati to Delhi via Bihar by Awadh Assam Express was kidnapped by the miscreants on July 9. Pritam, who had boarded S 10 coachof the express, had scuffle with some people travelling with him in the same bogie. Soon the goons snatched hisbag. He made the last call to his family telling them that he had missed the train at Naugachia station. Since then he remained untraced and his mobile was switched off. Later his mutilated body was found on July 15, on the railway track under Kataria overbridge, 12 km away from Naugechhia Railway Station.
Nikhil Bharat Banga Sahitya Sammelan, Silchar unit, condemned the brutal killing of Pritam Bhattacharjee. The organization also demanded the CBI probe into the Pritam murder case.The statement issued by the organization, alleges that the GRP and Bihar Police are not showing any seriousness to trace out the culprits.
The members of the Banga Sahitya Sammelan requested the Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi "to take proper steps" in this regard so that the Bihar Government "provides enough security tothe people of the Northeast". Biplab Kumar Goswami, general secretary of Silchar unit shared the information that he had already sent all the documents related to Pritam's episode including their demand for CBI inquiry into the murder case to the central committee of Nikhil Bharat Banga Sahitya Sammelan, Delhi, to make it a national issue.
All Assam Students' Union (AASU), Cachar unit, today burnt the effigy of Mukul Roy, Minister of Railways, forpassing the buck on the State, quite conveniently overlooking the responsibility of the Railways to ensure the safety and security of the passengers. (Sentinelassam)
