Minority body condemns killing of labourers
Correspondent
 NAGAON, Jan 17 – Minority (Muslim) Jatiya Mahasabha has expressed concern over the killing of six labourers of Assam on December 29 in Meghalaya. The labourers, namely Bidul Islam, Safiqul Islam, Guljar Hussain, Mithun Ali, Jehirul Islam and Munshi, residents of Morigaon and Nagaon districts were going to Meghalay to work in coal mines there. They were brutally killed on December 29, while Samsuddin alias Kakai Sardar was killed on December 26.

In a press release, the Mahasabha’s president Habib Ulah and general secretary Sarkar Giasuddin Ahmed claimed that the Assam Government had miserably failed to address the matter properly. The Jatiya Mahasabha has demanded adequate compensation for the kin of the ill-fated labourers and proper security to other workers.
