AGARTALA, Feb 18 (TIWN): Udbastu (Bengali victims of ethnic terrorist in ADC areas) have once again came in protest demanding compensation and rehabilitation for which they are protesting for 20 years.

The Udbastus were protesting since decades but their demands were neither accepted nor rejected.

Thus again on Monday the de-sheltered families have come to meet the District Magistrate of West District Sandeep Mahatme.

The 'Udbastu' (refugee) families who had to escaped from the ADC areas after their family members were killed, kidnapped by militants, till day maximum of them are residing either in relative's houses or in rents across Agartala, Bishalgarh. The de-sheltering of local residents had begun since 1994 and especially in 1998, 1999, 2000 and step by step from sensitive places like Jampuijala, Takarjala, Gadarbi and Golaghati the Bengali local people marked as 'Bangladeshi' were de-sheltered. Above 100 people till day are missing and total 65 persons killed during that militancy-tension time which led them to flew from ADCs on that time. After bundles of protests, held by the Udbastus in Tripura, the state govt had failed to provide them homes and the role of opposition parties also remained so far cold.

They have further threatened to go in massive protest if their demands are not fulfilled.
