The convicted individuals, namely Bitu Kalita, Pranjit Kalita, Manjit Sinha, Sujit Sinha, and Vicky Thapa, faced the grave consequence of life imprisonment for their roles in the tragic killing of Haren Kalita and the infliction of severe injury upon Nabakumar Barman. The incident, which unfolded in Hengerabari back in 2015, reverberated shockwaves throughout the local community, underscoring the gravity of the crime and its profound impact on the affected parties.

The case, initially registered under case number 86/2015 at Dispur police station, underwent meticulous investigation and scrutiny before reaching the judicial forum. Following a rigorous legal process, the court adjudicated upon the matter, ultimately finding all defendants culpable under sections 447 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code. This verdict, meted out with solemnity and impartiality, serves as a resolute affirmation of the justice system’s unwavering dedication to confronting criminal acts and upholding accountability, particularly in cases marred by violence and contentious property disputes.

In essence, the ruling stands as a poignant testament to the judiciary’s steadfast commitment to dispensing justice and fostering a society founded upon the principles of law, equity, and communal harmony. It reinforces the imperative of addressing grievances through lawful channels while deterring the scourge of violence and vigilantism within communities.
