Addressing a press conference held at District Press Club of Karbi Anglong, chairman, JACAS, Khorsing Teron said, “We strongly condemned the physical torture upon Mariam Rongpipi by the officer in-charge of Dokmoka Police Station, Nilamoni Malakar. The gory images of wounds and marks of the physical torture on the body of Mariam Rongpipi have gone viral on the social media are disturbingly shocking.”

Mariam Rongpipi is a cook of Rong Ar-e LP School, Langlokso under Samelangso police station and wife of Kania Tokbi, a Karbi Language Teacher of Rong Ar-e ME school.

Maneswar Kalita, one of the teachers of Rong Ar-e ME school, Langlokso was missing since 30th August last. The couple Mariam Rongpipi and Kania Tokbi was asked to report at Dokmoka Police Station on 21-10-2022 for interrogation in connection with the disappearance of Kalita. They were detained at the police station that night for interrogation and O/C Malakar had mercilessly beaten them, Teron said.  Mariam is now undergoing treatment at Diphu Medical College & Hospital, said Teron.

Moreover, Teron also said that it is a clear instance of violation of human rights and dignity of women. It is naked atrocities on Scheduled Tribes and extreme police brutality for extortion of confession. The police officers involved should be brought to book under appropriate sections of laws including the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Acts, 1989.

The missing person case should be properly investigated. It could be part of the larger conspiracy to destroy the education system in that particular hill area. The real culprits involved should be brought to book with exemplary punishment, but in the process, no innocent persons should be harassed unnecessarily, Teron Asserted.

The organisations also appealed to the elected representatives of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council to exert their influence and exercise their good offices in tackling the tense situation, Teron said and appeal to all sections of the people of the localities and all civil bodies of Karbi Anglong to extend co-operation in finding the whereabouts of Maneswar Kalita.

The press conference was attended by president, KFA, Tinku Ingti Kathar and president, KSYC, Sanjay Timung and other leaders.
