Haflong, October 2, 2020 : Demanding stringent punishment to a rapist Manik Kurmi, the All Apex Bodies Co ordination Committee (AABCC) submitted a representation to the Superintendent of Police, Dima Hasao, Haflong on 2nd October 2020.

The AABCC, an umbrealla Organization of 11(eleven) Apex Bodies of Dima Hasao, Assam strongly condemned the inhuman act of Mr. Manik Kurmi on an innocent girl of 10 (ten) years old of village 8 Kilo (Pan Bagan) under Umrangso Police Station in Dima Hasao on 30th September 2020 at 9 am.

Manik Kurmi is the son of Lt. Gangaram Kurmi of village Lankajan Nutun Basti under Lumding Police Station in Hojai district of Assam.

The AABCC Working President Frezer Sengyung, in the representation stated that as per information received from reliable sources, the culprit Manik Kurmi, taking advantage of the absence of her parents from home, forcefully intruded into their home and overpowered her with his muscular strength and sexually assaulted her. As a result of that shameful, inhuman and horrifying act, the culprit had not only  exploited her physically causing injuries, made her life miserably suffering from depression, severe anxiety, mental trauma, suicidal tendencies, etc. but also murdered human worth, conscience and dignity. Therefore, it is a double crime of heinous nature committed by Manik Kurmi, asserted the AABCC.
