Agartala: North Tripura district and session Court on Thursday sentenced three accused to life imprisonment in a two years old culpable homicide case.

The Court convicted prime accused Supriya Nath, his parents Pradip Nath and Sampa Nath for killing his aunt (Uncle’s wife) Amita Nath.

Two year long trial ended on September 12 last, but the Court reserved the judgment and subsequently passed the order today. Apart from that, District and session judge Gautam Sarkar also imposed a fine of Rs 20,000 to the prime accused and Rs 10,000 each to the other accused along with the rigorous imprisonment.

During the trials, the Court recorded statements of more than 30 witnesses including some school children who first spotted the mortal remains of the deceased.

According to public prosecutor Partha Paul, the incident came to light on August 21, 2019, when local school children of BBI Dharnamanagar spotted a half naked dead body adjacent to the school building.

Further investigation revealed the identity of the deceased as Amita Nath, a resident of post office road Dharmanagar.

Police sources said, Nath was killed by her nephew Supriya Nath. The deceased’s husband died years back and she used to stay with the family of her in-laws.

On the day of the incident, the convict in inebriated condition attempted to sexually abuse the deceased but she resisted. In the fit of rage, he assaulted her mercilessly and the woman succumbed to her injuries.

The convicts later dumped her body somewhere near the school which was later substantiated by the statements of the witnesses.

The police submitted the charge sheet against the trio implicating charges under IPC sections 302 (murder), 376 for secual assult and 201 (disapperance of evidence). The Court convicted the accused persons under all three charges.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
