According to a recent Government of Assam notification dated August 25, 2023, Mukul Kathar, the erstwhile secretary of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC), has been placed under suspension pending the initiation of “Departmental Proceedings”.

The said notification explicitly states that an exhaustive enquiry report has been presented by Rajeshan Terang, the current secretary of KAAC. This report substantiates the claims that Mukul Kathar, during his tenure, resorted to physical violence against Sengpi Teronpi and even brandished a firearm, menacingly targeting his own wife, Lindalee Teronpi. The alarming incident is reported to have taken place on April 22, 2023. On this fateful day, Kathar is also alleged to have discharged his firearm into the ground in Diphu.

The gravity of the situation is underscored by the fact that two separate cases have been formally lodged against Mukul Kathar at the Diphu police station, solidifying the legal actions being taken against him.

The findings of this enquiry have prompted swift action. As the dust settles and investigations unfold, it remains to be seen how the authorities will address this distressing breach of conduct by a public servant.
