: Amid much clamor created by some of the political organizations of Karbi Anglong centering the dramatic kidnapping of a forest employee, Rupleen Engtipi and clubbing the same with the clandestine auctioning of Red Sander under the patronage of DFO East Division Forest,. J.N. Hazarika , the Stead fast daily on its own initiated a through enquiry on the entire episode and has come out with an absolute contrasting picture of the much hyped abduction case of. Rupleen Engtipi.
It may be noted that it was the Stead fast daily which published the sensational Red Sander scam and brought to light the unlawful activities of DFO East J.N. Hazarika, however it seems that by mingling the Red Sander scandal with the much glorified kidnapping of Rupleen Engtipi the socio – political bodies have made some premature observations.
While conducting investigation, some startling facts have surfaced which clearly indicate Rupleen Engtipi indulging in fraudulence; she is not only misguiding the police and Judiciary but is also using some political parties, particularly some Women organizations for her own reasons.
Facts suggest that Rupleen Engtipi made one Affidavit at the Diphu Court, Notary Declaration on October 26 almost after 27 days of her eloping from Diphu , clearly stating before the Court that she left her husband Sanjay Killing due to inhuman attitude and behaviour meted towards her by her husband, she further said that she was not kidnapped by anyone and left Diphu out of her free will without any undue influence and threat from anybody.
Further her Affidavit declared that she was residing in one of her friend’s house at Nagoan on her own will, it may be mentioned that Rupleen earlier filed a case U/S 498 (A) of IPC against her husband at the Diphu Police Station, Case No- 91/09 and gave her statements U/S 164 of CRPC in the Court Juri Deka against her husband, Sanjay Killing. In the same affidavit Rupleen Engtipi made it clear that she had to withdraw the case due to the influence of her family members against her own consent.
During her stay at Nagoan made an affidavit before the Nagoan Court (Notary Declaration) on October 10 where she declared that she left her husband and three children on 30-09-2009 due to her husband’s physical , mental torture and cruelty and was never kidnapped by her colleague Nipon Goswami. Question arises, if as per Rupleen Engtipi’s own statement she was kept in a locked room by Nipon Goswami, her abductor, how she could come all the way to Diphu and make a Notary Declaration in Diphu Court.?
Since Diphu is her native town she had all the opportunity to liberate herself from her abductor as she was within the Diphu Court campus, report to the police, call her husband or other relatives and make them aware of her condition or inform them of her kidnapping, instead she preferred to make the declaration in the Diphu Court ( October 26) which makes it obvious that she acted as per her own desire.
Another point is that it was these particular reporters (whom Rupleen Engtipi has entangled with her kidnapping) who brought the Red Sander issue before public and forced. J.N. Hazarika to come under the hammer of Forest Law, the first report on Red Sander scandal was published in “Nagaland Post” and the report was filed by none other the Editor of Stead fast daily himself, as to how these reporters can lately collaborate with J.N. Hazarika and create plan to abduct Rupleen Engtipi is another seriously debatable issue now, is it not to early for some Women organizations to call for the head of those senior reporters who have served the cause of this district with distinction for more that two decades which include reaching the voice of all the socio- political houses of Karbi Anglong before public simply on the basic of one particular sentence pronounced by Rupleen Engtipi in the Diphu Court?
While speaking to the Stead fast daily some of the accused reporters said that they have already moved the hon’ble Guwahati High Court and are completing adequate legal action in the issue, they further appealed before the political bodies and Women organizations of Karbi Anglong to pay attention to their versions also, keep their faith on the Indian Judiciary and not to get provoked by false, inflated and fabricated statements of vested persons.
