Attacks on the North Eastern people should be proven by the CBI

New Delhi: Expressing grave concerns about fleeing of the North Eastern people from various parts of India including 5,000 from Bangalore alone,Asian Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) stated that the Centre and the State Governments have failed to take appropriate actions against those spreading doctored MMS to provoke attacks on the North Eastern people as well as those involved in the attacks on the North Eastern people following the Bodo-Muslim conflict in Assam.

“The State Governments have failed to take action against those who have been spreading doctored MMS of the riots in Assam to provoke attacks on the North Eastern people. With respect to those who have been arrested in Pune, the Maharashtra Police had failed to invoke the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities Act), despite many of the victims belonging to the Scheduled Tribes community and being attacked based on their for their physical features.” – stated Mr Suhas Chakma, Director of the Asian Centre for Human Rights.

“Those who have stabbed Tenzin Dhargiyial (22), a Tibetan presuming to be a Bodo are still roaming around freely and the State has failed to assuage the  fears of the people from the North Eastern region.” - further added Mr Chakma.

Asian Centre for Hunan Rights urged the Central government and the State Governments to handover the case of spreading of doctored MMS on the Assam riots and the attacks on the North Eastern people to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). [Ends]
