Umrongso, Dec 24 2011: The bodies of Col J Sidhu (55), Assistant Manager of JayPee Cement Ltd and Romen Sharma (52) Deputy Manager of Assam Mining Development Corporation Ltd, were recovered today from Longdang Village, a Karbi Village towards Haflong near Langlai Village approximately 20 Km from Umrongso town in Dima Hasao District ( Erstwhile N.C.Hills) on Thursday. The two were abducted by unidentified miscreats on september 25 last.
Surprisingly some media has earlier blamed it on suspected Karbi Militants, who does not have any presence in the said location. Some villagers in and around has claimed to have seen suspected NSCN(IM) militants just before the abduction.
The backlash of the unconfirmed media report blaming the Karbi Militants has initiated the armed force to pick innocent Karbi Villagers in the pretext of inquiries against the militants bringing harassment to the innocents making the full use of AFSPA, which was extended in Assam recently.
It will be interesting to see the action of the authorities as more innocents being pick up by the armed force as they are going to have a combing operation starting Dec 26 .
