Dark shadows of violence claim five lives in Barak Valley

SILCHAR, August 20: Dark shadows of violence, backlashof BTAD violence and the mass exodus from the south-west cities, have claimed the lives of 5 innocent boys of thisvalley, 4 from Hailakandi district and 1 from Cachar. They have been identified as Atikur Rahman Mazumder, Saibur Rahman Barbhuiya, Hussain Ahmed and Arshad Hussain from the Lala area of Hailakandi and I Sanjeev Singh of Kaptanpur part-III under Lakhipur police station of Cachar district. All of them were posted as security guards with different private companies. While all the four from Hailakandi were working in Bangaluru, I Sanjeev Singh was attached to a private company in Hyderabad.
According to information received here, Atikur Rahman Mazumder, Saibur Rahman Barbhuiya, Hussain Ahmed and Arshad Hussain were returning to their respective native villages under Lala police station for the celebration of Eid with their family members while I Sanjeev Singh was coming back being advised by his father in view of the 'rumours' circling around, threatening people from Northeast.
Atikur Rahman Mazumder, Saibur Rahman Barbhuiya, Hussain Ahmed and Arshad Hussain along with as many as 17 other passengers were travelling by Bangaluru-Guwahati express in the samecompartment. When the trainleft New Jalpaiguri station, a group of miscreants in the compartment swooped on them suddenly. 13 of them were thrown out of the compartment. As a result, 9 ofthem were critically injured. Atikur Rahman Mazumder and 3 others who were subjected to brutal assault by the miscreants died from the grievous injuries sustained bythem. This brutal attack on them took place at a place known as Belacoba. The miscreants had boarded the train as passengers according to their preplanned design, the information said. The incident took place around 8 pm of Saturday night. All the 21 passengers are from Hailakandi district.
I Sanjeev Singh who had joined his posting as security guard with DLF company in April last and was heading forhome from Hyderabad by train at the call of his family members was found lying dead on the rail track near the station of Rambag by government railway protection force personnel, Radhey Shyam Pandey.
The dead body with injuries on his head was recovered on the night of August 18 and the GRPF informed his family members immediately on the basis of his identity card.
The GRPF in charge of Rambagrailway station, Radhey Shyam Pandey, near Allahabad junction, could not provide any details to his father Thomai Singh about the circumstances in which hewas killed. Or was it a case of suicide? Only a postmortem report would reveal it. The likely cause behind his tragic death is being attributed to the 'hate-mail' and the 'rumours' which led to mass exodus of North east people from the south. Quite pathetic, I Sanjeev Singh leaves behind his wife and two little daughters.
These tragic deaths have cast a pall of gloom in Barak Valley. The Eid celebration in the district of Hailakandi has been on a subdued and melancholic note. As the deadbodies of the four unfortunate victims of attacksby goons are expected to reach Hailakandi tomorrow, apprehending breach of peace, the district administration has taken all possible precautionary measures.
