Murder case of 2 migrants, VHP demands President intervention

Shillong: The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) has urged President Droupadi Murmu to intervene in the recent death of two non-tribal migrant laborers in Meghalaya following an anti-CAA rally in the state and to ask central investigative agencies to probe the incident.
In separate incidents, bodies of two non-tribal migrant laborers were recovered in Meghalaya’s Ichamati area after an anti-CAA rally organized by the Khasi Students’ Union last Wednesday evening.
Whether the deaths were related to the rally or a result of another incident has not yet been confirmed by the state police.
Raising the issue in a letter to President Murmu, Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) general secretary Bajrang Bagra claimed that two migrants in Ichamati village in Meghalaya’s East Khasi Hills district after an anti-CAA rally. The workers were “brutally murdered”.

“The irony is that the district is exempted from the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) by virtue of being a sixth scheduled state. It is the place where a pressure group organised an anti-CAA rally which led to the murder of two innocent Hindus by unknown miscreants, as widely reported in the media” Bagra said.

“The VHP calls for your kind intervention and urges that a thorough investigation be done by the CBI or the NIA to bring perpetrators to justice soon,” he added.

The VHP functionary demanded that the case be heard by a special court to ensure justice in a time-bound manner and the dependents of the victims be provided “compensation, jobs and proper security”.

“This attack is nothing but a pre-planned move of the so-called unknown groups to instil fear among the non-tribal minorities who continue to suffer the brunt of racism and unprovoked attacks with the administration and others washing their hands off by ritualistically, as they have been doing over the years,” he charged.

Bagra urged President Murmu to ensure a “swift and collective action” is taken to ensure the safety and dignity of “all minority communities” across the region and curb the “lawless individuals and groups”.

Administrative action be taken against those who allowed such a rally even though the model code of conduct is in effect and the CAA is not applicable to the state, he also demanded.
