KMSS to protest court’s eviction order

In pursuance of an order of the High Court, the Revenue Circle Officer of Bokakhat, Bipul Das has passed an eviction order to 666 families residing around Kaziranga National Park (KNP).

The High Court issued this order on the basis of a writ petition filed by Mrinal Saikia of Golaghat alleging that people around Kaziranga were illegal possessors of land. However, most of the 666 families are indigenous people and had settled there before Kaziranga was declared a national park.

KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi has vehemently criticized the role of the Forest Department and decided to go against the order of the High Court as the ordinance was issued on the basis of alleged fake information supplied by Mrinal Saikia to gain ‘cheap publicity’.

Gogoi  has appealed the people of greater Kaziranga to attend a protest rally to be held on September 30.

Maria won’t quit, but confusion clouds Sheena murder probe

Former Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria, who was abruptly promoted as director general of police (Home Guards), on Wednesday categorically assured that he will not quit, as uncertainty hit the investigation into the high-profile Sheena Bora murder case.

Late on Tuesday evening, the Maharashtra government decided that Maria, who handled the case since the beginning, would continue to supervise and monitor the probe.

However, till Wednesday evening, no written order to this effect was received by Maria’s office — and the probe suddenly seemed pushed to the backburner.

According to official sources, the investigations have reached a critical stage with the forensic matching of the DNA samples of the victim with her mother and prime accused Indrani Mukerjea, brother Mikhail Bora and biological father Siddhartha Das.

Besides, the probe has widened to investigating the money and property transactions with the possibility of some big names tumbling out when the police force was jolted by the shake-up on Tuesday.

An officer explained that new police commissioner Ahmad Javed has already taken office and as per norms, all officers and men must report to him.

With Maria supervising the investigation in the Sheena murder case, it was still unclear in what capacity he would be doing it, especially since the two departments — DGP Home Guards and DGP Mumbai Police Commissionerate — were vested with different powers and jurisdiction, he added.

Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai have been arrested in connection with the murder of her daughter Sheena on April 24, 2012, and for dumping her body near a forested area in Gagode village in Raigad district.

The trio have been sent to judicial custody till September 21.

Birth anniversary of Bhupenda celebrated

Over 180 open stages & parks inaugurated across State

The 89th birth anniversary of music maestro, the bard of Brahmaputra Dr Bhupen Hazarika was observed throughout the State in a splendid way on Tuesday. Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi inaugurated 187 open stages and parks named after the balladeer’s Bhupen Hazarika in a programme centrally organized at Boko.

The open stages and parks are in 187 development blocks across the state, where people can stage cultural shows and other programmes free of cost round the year.

Inaugurating the open stages, Gogoi said, “Bhupen da was an international artiste and personality and at the same time a person of simplicity. Unity and integrity were his strength and he believed in his ideology of simplicity. He won the heart of every layman. He lives in the heart of every Assamese and will continue to live for ages to come.”

On the other hand, Cultural Minister Bismita Gogoi said that the ‘Samadhi Khetra’ will be completed soon. “As promised, the Samadhi Khetra of Dr Bhupen Hazarika will be completed by November,” she said.

The programme was also attended by Minister Rockybul Hussain and parliamentary secretary Rekibuddin Ahmed.

The Chief Minister earlier visited the music maestro’s final resting place at Jalukbari and paid tribute to the legend along with thousand others who thronged the ‘Samadhi Khetra to pay their tributes.

It may be mentioned that, apart from the government, various organizations such as Bishwaratna Bhupen Hazarika Samannay Satra (BBHSS), All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) also organized various programmes in Jalukbari as well as other parts of the State to mark the day.

The AASU organized a programme at Dighalipukhuri where hundreds of singers from different colleges and universities of the performed the numbers of the bard of Brahmaputra. The tributary programme was inaugurated by AASU advisor Dr Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharya.

“Dr Bhupen Hazarika was an institution himself. We believe that his ‘Samadhi Khetra’ should be an extra ordinary one. Since the Gauhati University is already willing to donate more land for the memorial, we appeal the government to take up the issue and do the needful,” Dr Bhattacharya said.

The district administration also organized a tributary programme at Rabindra Bhawan of the city this evening and paid tribute to the maestro.

Rebel Congress MLAs in dilemma

No guarantee of tickets by BJP, prospects of Congress tickets almost nil

The nine rebel Congress MLAs, who had met BJP president Amit Shah in New Delhi expressing their desire to join the party, are facing increasing resistance from a strong lobby within the State BJP unit.

Nagaon MP Rajen Gohain today for the first time gave vent to the resentment brewing within the party over the reported move to induct the rebel Congress legislators in the BJP.

“We are not being kept in the loop. We don’t even know who are joining the party. We believe that the national leadership will not take any decision that is against the interests of State party workers,” Gohain said.

Gohain, Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Mangaldai MP Ramen Deka and Tezpur MP RP Sharma today went into a huddle with some senior party leaders, including former president Ranjit Das at the Circuit House here. The closed-door meeting lasted for over an hour. Sources said the MPs discussed the present scenario arising out of reports that the nine Congress rebel legislators may join the BJP soon.

A senior BJP member, who participated in the meeting, said “a dissident in another party cannot be a sincere worker in the BJP. He will create trouble wherever he is.”

A section of the State BJP camp is also peeved at reports that the Congress legislators have been assured tickets by the BJP leadership.

“In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, people voted for us because they wanted an alternative to the Congress. If we embrace the discarded Congress members, we will no longer be a formidable alternative,” rued another senior BJP leader.

Meanwhile, sources said that the BJP central leadership was non-committal on giving tickets to the nine rebel Congress legislators who are keen on joining the party. This had landed them in a piquant situation.

State Congress president Anjan Dutta even claimed that some of the rebel MLAs are now in touch with him and may not join the BJP. “They did not get an assurance for BJP tickets. Some of them are in touch with us. I do not feel they will quit the Congress,” Dutta said.

Even if the legislators remain in the Congress, sources said, most of them are unlikely to get tickets in the upcoming assembly elections.

‘I hate my mother… she is a witch’

Diary maintained by Sheena Bora when she was a teenager shows that she shared a strained relationship with her mother Indrani Mukherjea

Mumbai, Sept 3: Mumbai police have recovered the diary of Sheena Bora which bears testimony as to how much she hated her mother Indrani Mukherjea.

E-mail exchanges of an aggressive nature between Indrani Mukherjee and Sheena Bora are already being probed by the Mumbai Police.

The diary entries also reveal Sheena’s expectations from her father.

Accessed by a national daily, the diary of Sheena, the Guwahati girl allegedly murdered by her own mother, has “slam notes from friends, phone numbers and letters to her father”.

It is clear from the diary entries that Sheena “was sad about not being around her biological father Siddhartha Das and repeatedly urged him to come and visit her”.

The contents of the letters to her father suggest that Sheena was in touch with Siddharth Das. However, Das has told the media that he was barely in touch with Sheena Bora, who started writing her diary sometime in 2003.

One of her earlier diary entries say: “Daddy, I am very angry with you. O.k. I didn’t get any time to write any letter to you but you should have written to me. Very mean ha! Well, even I am sorry for not writing any letter to you. In Class X, we have to work very hard. In the morning at 7.30. We have to go to school and again I have to attend my maths coaching class 3 O’clock to 4.30 pm and again from 6 O’clock to 8 O’clock my science coaching class. I reach home at about 8.30 pm. Hope you can imagine how hard I’m working.”

She also writes: “Daddy, I’ve cut my nails and I haven’t grown them long. I’m following your advice – first studies then style. I know you have a lot to tell me but daddy don’t write anything in any of your letter. I hope you’ll come once before my HSLC exams. Why don’t you make a trip to Guwahati in December. Then you can tell me everything you wanted me to know.”

In a ‘draft’ letter, Sheena says: “Daddy actually I’m facing a problem. For my HSLC, I’m to fill up some forms and there we are to write to which caste we belong. Daddy, I’m really very confused for I am not sure about my caste. We have got the options – Schedule/OBC/…”.

The entry she made when she had just appeared for her pre-boards says that she could not study much due to her illness and scored 84 percent. She further asks her father in one of the letters: “Don’t you have the capability of starting something from (sic) your own instead of depending upon others.” She also advises him to leave the job at HITACHI KK and look for a better one. And in the same letter, she adds: “Oh! It seems as if I am trying to guide you.”

In one of the entries, Sheena asks Das to provide her with a certificate so that she could get scholarships for her further studies. The diary entry, marked June 28, 29 and 30, says that Sheena wanted her father to make expenses for her future.

In one of her later entries, which looks like it was written when she was studying for the board exams in Class X, she says that she does not know how to look for envelopes, and so has been unable to send letters. The entry also speaks volumes about her affection with Das and unhappiness over her grandparent’s attitude towards her father. “They say you are no good, and they don’t like you. But my conscience does not allow me to believe them,” she wrote.

The diary entries reveal that Sheena had not known much about her mother. However, Indrani was in the `corner of Sheena’s heart` because she was her mother. Notably, Sheena had stored clippings of news reports of her mother. News reports of INX media launching new channels, of Indrani being considered WSJ’s most powerful women with Indra Nooyi and others, etc were kept by Sheena in a folder, says the daily.

Sheena, as the diary suggests, was very lonely as a child. She writes: “Oh! Happy Birthday to me! But I am not happy. It seems as if I have got nothing in my life. Nothing! My future seems very bleak to me. Just depression has encircled me from all sides. Disgusting life it is. I hate my mother, that bloody b***h. She is not a mother. She is a witch…”

Sheena was also not happy when Indrani married Peter Mukherjea. “And now she got married with that old man (Peter Mukherjea). Her this act to Aita & Kaka (Sheena’s grandparents) seems very prestigious, very wise, but not in case of me (Read: my grandparents may find this prestigious or wise, but not me). I hate her. I wish her soul gets condemned and even in hell. I have much grief, much tears to flow but when, where and in front of whom.”

E-mail exchanges of an aggressive nature between Sheena Bora and her mother Indrani Mukherjee are being probed by the Mumbai Police to ascertain the motive leading to the former’s killing.

Sometime before Sheena’s gruesome murder on April 24, 2012, there were at least 20 heated e-mail exchanges with her mother, prime accused Indrani.

Investigators are hoping that these e-mails could provide clues to the motive leading to Sheena’s killing, allegedly by the trio comprising Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna in connivance with Indrani’s driver Shyamvar Rai.
