Morigaon: Tiwa Yuba Chatra
Parishad on Saturday blocked NH-37 in Assam`s Morigaon district
demanding CBI probe into the death of one of its leaders.
The activists blocked the highway at Dharamtul for
more than four hours this afternoon demanding a CBI inquiry
into the death of its advisor Arun Manta who was knocked down
by a car without a number plate on April 4, 2011.
The activists alleged Manta`s death was a "pre-planned
murder". They had earlier urged the state government to
institute a judicial inquiry but a CID inquiry was ordered
whose report was yet to be made public.
The activist later lifted the blockade on the
assurance of the district administration and there was no
report of any untoward incident, sources said.
