GUWAHATI: Bodoland Peoples’ Front (BPF) President Hagrama Mohilary to receive cabinet-level security.
In a letter by Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kokrajhar, Anurag Agarwal to Mohilary said that he will receive two bodyguards with (1+3 escort) one havildar and three constables, and (2+6 home guards) two havildars and six constables.
The development came immediately after Mohilary surrendered all his security cover following the defeat in the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) polls.
Immediately after the security cover of Mohilary was withdrawn, the BPF in its official Facebook page wrote, “After holding the post of the Chief of BTC for 17 years which has equal status to the rank of a Cabinet Minister, the security of our party President Srijut Hagrama Mohilary will always be a matter of concern. Not only is he the former Chief of BTC but also the President of one of the largest regional parties in the state.”
It added that it was the responsibility of the state government to provide him with adequate security such that his life is always secured.
“We request the state government to assess and review the threat status he has as a former Chief of BTC and a Party president and provide him with adequate security,” BPF added.
