Assam terrorist victims forum oppose NDFB leader’s bail

Ahead of the verdict on Bodo outfit leader Ranjan Daimary’s bail plea, the families of 2008 Assam serial blasts victims on Sunday demanded that it be rejected and he be awarded exemplary punishment for the bombings that left over 100 dead and 500 others injured. The Gauhati High Court heard the bail plea of Daimary, chief of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB), Saturday and is expected to give its verdict on 3 April. Daimary’s lawyers moved the petition in 2011 after his arrest, saying it will expedite the proposed peace talks between his NDFB faction and the central government.

Forum for Terrorists Victim Family, Assam had however raised strong objections in granting bail to the rebel leader.

‘It will be a gross injustice to us if the court grants bail to Daimary. We have lost our family members during the serial blasts. Our family members died without any fault of theirs. Ranjan Daimary is responsible for the crime and he must get exemplary punishment,’ said Indranil Kalita, publicity secretary of the Forum.
