 SHILLONG: After remaining silent for nearly two weeks since the abduction of Block Development Officer (BDO) of Daddengre PK Boro, the Meghalaya Civil Services Officer’s Association (MCSOA) has finally sought the State Government’s intervention for the safe release of their colleague.

The Association held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the ramifications of the law and order situation in Garo Hills.

During the meeting, the association decided to request the Government to provide adequate security to the family members of Boro besides urging the Government to intervene in the safe release of the BDO.

“The safety and security of the civil service officers and their family members cannot be compromised and government should take adequate security steps to ensure a safe and secure working environment for them,” the Association president HM Shangpliang said.

The MCSOA also met Chief Secretary WMS Pariat on Tuesday seeking his intervention for the release of the BDO.

The Association further asked the government to review the existing security arrangements for the civil service officers serving in Garo Hills.

It may be recalled that Boro was abducted on November 21by a group of GNLA militants after kidnapping two Assam based traders. Though the GNLA had released the traders a few days ago, the block officer is traceless.

The GNLA had asked the government to withdraw security forces from Garo Hills as a pre condition for the release of the officer, but the government has rejected the demand.

ANVC charge: Meanwhile, the Achhik National Volunteer Council (ANVC) has alleged that the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) is planning to eliminate a particular ANVC leader and some other senior cadres of the outfit before Christmas.Stating this here on Tuesday, ANVC leader Torik Jangning Marak said the rebel group also blamed his organization for the arrest of its chief Champion Sangma in Bangladesh. “GNLA has gone insane in trying to prove its supremacy in Garo Hills,” Marak added.
