Recently, Kakuho, while denying his involvement in alleged March 20 assault incident at Purana Bazar ‘B’ village, claimed that he was appointed as “Head G.B. of Padumpukhuri Village” vide Order No. GEN-1/2009-D/12857-60 on March 30, 2010 and was still serving as head GB Padumpukhuri Village.

However, GBs of Padum Pukhuri village, clarified that Kakuho was appointed as GB against the vacated post by late Honivi Sema head GB in 2010 on the recommendation of Sumi community and as forwarded by the village council. They said there could be “typographical error in his appointment order copy otherwise the government never appoints any individual as head GB as it is prerogative of the village authority to choose/select their head GB.”

Further, the signatories said that Padum pukhuri village council meeting dated June 14, 2014 selected Dhanpati Mech as head GB on seniority basis by resolution and he continues till date wherein. They said Kakuho was very much present in that meeting and one of the signatories.
