AGARTALA, Jan 21 (TIWN): Critically injured Sumit Debbarma is still hospitalized at Kolkata after he was victimized in brutal firing of Tripura Police on January 8 during protest against Citizenship Bill, TSR but so far the Biplab Deb Govt has not ordered any proper inquiry nor took action on the SP West Ajit Pratap Singh and still holding position as SP of the West District. Rather the Govt has been silent on the firing order claimed the whole incident as an “accident”. Police attacked the ambulance which was carrying critically injured patients led the ambulance to rush from the spot and take shelter in CRPF cam and later under CRPF observation the ambulance got pass from the brutal police. Footage also available how the firing was not done in the air but targeting the innocent people of Madhab Bari. Most injured Sumit Debbarma was not even an agitator but just a local who went to see the ongoing after BJP miscreants burnt shops of the common men and vandalized. No action against police and the BJP led miscreants also raised question on the Home Dept’s role led by Chief Minister Biplab Deb.Law and order raised eyebrows on democracy in various similar incident with no action against Late Shukhu Gour’s murderers who was again killed by BJP miscreants brutally. Shukhu Gour was set a fire cracker on his head by BJP leaders at Durjoy Nagar (near Airport) on Diwali night after he denied to give donation for Kali puja.

MP Jitendra Chadhury also visited the violence undergone Jirania and holding a press conference he said, “It’s clear that the administration could avoid the overall situation. On that day already vehicles were less and shops were closed and the blockade was going on at Madhabbari Temuni road but the situation changed by BJP miscreants and a section of police officials. It’s extremely unfortunate, barbaric that the ambulance was not allowed to pass and they returned and last CRPF guided the ambulance to reach hospital. It’s a heavy violation of human rights”.

Demanding Judicial investigation in Madhab Bari (Jirania) violence, MP Jitendra Chaudhury said, “Govt gave Magisterial investigation whereas West District Magistrate Sandeep mahatma already shown himself not an IAS but an agent of BJP. His investigation will be nothing but a readymade report from BJP office, indeed a farce. No investigation will be done properly and so we want Judicial investigation”.

Whereas Govt is talking about free medical service given to the injured victims of the violence, Congress leader, Manikya dynasty inheritor Pradyot Manikya has alleged that State Govt hasn’t given anything to critically injured Sumit Debbarma except arranging flight fares for the family.

On January 11, NESO (North East Student Organization) members also visited Triura, under whose call on January 8 the strike was observed against Citizenship Bill, but they were not allowed to meet the victims of police firing and NESO has called for “Judicial Investigation” under a sitting judge from the High Court.But so far Govt has only ordered for Magisterial probe and West DM Sandeep Mahatme to investigate the case. The BJP-led Tripura government on Thursday ordered a magisterial inquiry into the police firing on Tuesday injuring six tribal youths, agitating against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. But all opposition parties including BJP’s ally IPFT have demanded Judicial investigation whereas Govt has been mute over the demand.
