Meet on Garo hills killings

Tura, July 25: An emergent meeting was called by deputy commissioner of West Garo Hills, Pravin Bakshi, in view of the law and order situation in Garo hills and death of two migrant labourers in the last four days in Tura.

Bakshi has asked sub-divisional officer (civil), Dadenggre, Sibhi C. Sadhu, to meet his counterpart in Assam, A.L. Gyani, sub-divisional officer, Hatsingimari, with leaders of social and religious organisations immediately.

He said, “Confidence-building measures will be discussed by the two officers, besides regular joint patrolling along the border areas.”

On civil society groups staging protests in Mancachar and its adjoining areas, Bakshi said, “The organisations will be informed about counter-insurgency initiatives to thwart the rise in crime.”

Bakshi said the decision was taken in consultation the police and district administration of West Garo Hills.

The review meeting also decided that there would be a team headed by a magistrate that will take stock of migrant labourers. The district administration has set up a control room with a phone number — 09089398451 — to receive information on extortions, demand notes and militancy.
