Rajkhowa a terrorist, punish him, say parents of Dhemaji victims

A couple of days after he was accorded a hero’s welcome on his release on bail, Arabinda Rajkhowa, chairman of the outlawed United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), is facing a lot of difficult questions to which he apparently does not have an immediate answer.

While the All Tai-Ahom Students’ Association (ATASU), an influential students’ body in upper Assam, has asked Rajkhowa why the outfit had killed one of its founders, families in Dhemaji, where 13 children were killed in an explosion on August 15, 2004, have questioned why the ULFA chief was being given such a public reception. “We want to know from Arabinda Rajkhowa why the ULFA had brutally murdered Dimbeswar Gogoi, a founder of the ATASU in 1990,” said Pranjal Rajkonwar, president of the students’ body.
