TURA: Distraught with mental agony and pain the family of Dadenggre BDO P K Boro has appealed to the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) to release him safely.

The wife of the BDO, Mrs Aparajita Mushahary, along with her young son and other family members have given an open letter of appeal to the militant outfit seeking her husband’s safe release.

“My husband is innocent, sincere and hardworking. He has been working for the cause of development of the block area since his posting and his conduct and integrity in public life is known to everyone,” said Mrs Mushahary.

At the same time, other family members including his elder sister who happens to be a medical doctor and in-laws have also given a separate appeal to the Garo militant group for the safe and early release of PK Boro.

“Our son and brother is an innocent, sincere and hardworking officer who believes in working for the good cause of development. His abduction has caused immense suffering and mental agony to his wife and small son and all the family members,” the appeal mentioned.

Abstain from provocative statements, urges UCPF

The United Christian Peace Forum (UCPF), Tura, reflecting upon the escalation of abductions of Government officials in Garo Hills by GNLA militants have expressed fear and apprehensions of the likelihood of eruption of ethnic clashes leading to death of innocent people which could spread well beyond the borders of Garo Hills.

Stating that the abduction of a Government official belonging to an ethnic community existing alongside the Garo community would incite communal clashes leading to loss of innocent lives, the UCPF has appealed to the GNLA to unconditionally release the abducted BDO, PK Boro.

The Forum has urged the banned outfit not to go ahead with their decision to counter the Government by executing abducted Government official after ten days as appeared in a section of the media for the sake of the larger interests of the people of Garo Hills.

The UCPF has also urged the State Government to take cognizance of the appeals already made by the forum and has also requested the Chief Minister and the DGP to restrain from making provocative statements because of which officers serving in far flung areas are victimized to the point of losing their lives.
