Assam: Organisation plea not to target Karbis

GUWAHATI, June 12, 2018: On Monday, Coordination Committee of the Tribal Organisations of Assam (CCOTOA) had urged people not to target the Karbi community to avenge the Dokmoka incident in Karbi Anglong.

Two youths from Guwahati, Nilotpal Das and Abhijit Nath, were killed by a mob at Panjuri Kacharigaon under Dokmoka police station in central Assam's Karbi Anglong district around 8pm on Friday, suspecting them to be child lifters. The duo had gone there to visit a waterfall.

The CCOTOA leaders described the incident as "barbaric" and demanded "exemplary punishment" for the culprits. They said after the lynching, some people are targeting Karbis working or studying in different districts, particularly in Nagaon, Dibrugarh, Kamrup (metro) and Jorhat.
