The anti-talks faction of National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB),headed by founder chairman Ranjan Daimary,has threatened to kill 20 non-Bodo persons for every Bodo tribal killed in the hands of security forces. The threat came in the form of an e-mailed statement,issued by the outfits assistant information and publicity secretary B Samijing,after a Bodo youth,Simul Boro,was killed by security forces at Boko in Kamrup district on Wednesday. Simul Boro,the statement claimed,was not a militant cadre.
Many innocent Bodo youths have been targeted and victimized by Assam Police and security forces in the name of insurgency. Our community has been exploited,dominated,suppressed,oppressed and discriminated till today. Simul Boro was targeted and shot dead by security forces because he was a Bodo, the statement said.
Warning the government to stop such killings,the statement said,The government should not test our patience. Twenty-for-one is our standing resolution.
