Mob fury kills Bangladeshi cow smuggler in Cooch Behar

On February 6, 2014, a cow smuggler named Aminur Rahman (age 30) was killed by an irate mob, tired of escalating cow smuggling in the area and also the lackluster response of local administration to inhibit this ominous trade. The incident took place at the village of Hemkumari under the police station of Kuchilbari in Mekhligunj within the district of Cooch Behar adjacent to the international India-Bangladesh border. According to local police, slain Aminur Rahman is originally from Bangladesh and lived in Patgram there. The dead body, following post-mortem examination, was handed over to the Bangladeshi police through a flag meeting with Border Guard of Bangladesh (BGB) at Charbandha. Meanwhile, 4 persons, known to be involved in stealing a cow in the village of Nagar Bhagni of Dinhata, were handed over to local police. Police seized the vehicle used to smuggle cow as well.  

On the word of Anup Jaiswal, Superintendent of Police in Cooch Behar, a team comprising Bangladeshis entered the Indian mainland to appropriate and then smuggle cows into Bangladesh. However, local villagers caught one of them red-handed and the mob fury led to his death. The slain youth, later on, was identified as Aminur Rahman and a citizen of Bangladesh and hence, his body was transferred to the Border Guard of Bangladesh (BGB) after complying with official procedures.

But there are other facts as well and this was revealed after talking to villagers. In accordance with villagers, smuggling of cows has become a regular affair in the realm of bordering districts and whether it is North Bengal or South Bengal, the picture remains same and without doubt, the situation, thanks to administrative indifference or compulsions, is worsening steadily. And Mekhligunj in the district of Cooch Behar happens to be one of the worst affected areas.  

In accordance with villagers, a team of seven Bangladeshi cow smugglers entered the Indian soil through Kuchilbari border in the dead of night on February 6 and at 2 am they tried to barge in the village of Hemkumari. When locals got cautious and started to pour out of their residences in large numbers, all criminals tried to run away. When villagers chased the team, six of them could manage to cross the border and enter Bangladesh. One of them, as reported already, was caught red-handed and was thrashed in public leading to his death. However, villagers remained tight-lipped of the death. For that reason, even if local police of Kuchilbari patrolled the entire area, they couldn’t find out the slain body. It was found in the morning on Thursday.  

On February 7, locals in the village of Bhagni within Dinhata caught four people red-handed for stealing cows and following a good thrashing in public, two cows were recovered. Later, they were handed over to the local police.  But residents in the village of Hemkumari are found to be apprehensive of a lethal attack before long and according to them, cow smugglers, including six who had fled to Bangladesh, would come with lethal weapons for a reprisal. When asked of reasons behind such an apprehension, these types of attacks, after any failed attempt, was termed as common in the area. But at this time, instead of depending on police and BSF, villagers are preparing themselves to stave off any tragedy.

Another outrage in Bengal - Hindu Monk of Ramakrishna Order stripped and beaten mercilessly for Ashram land.

A panic may strike now the common Hindu people for the ongoing incidents of South Bengal for the last two months when the CPI(M), the ruling party of the state tasted a bad defeat by losing the muslim support in this region through Panchayet election. When the wining force of All India Trinamul congress (AITMC known as TMC), is considering all the prime posts for the muslim minorities in every stage of Panchayet system, the losing CPIM has already adopted the way of direct torture against hindu people out of any situation for winning the heart of muslim people and to regain the muslim support by giving various packages to the muslim minority.
On June 12, 2008 one Muslim leader of CPI(M) Sk. Ismail initiated the attack upon Hindu pilgrims in Gangasagar with the help of some 3000 fanatical muslim mob.

Hindus in Panchla reel under terror

The whole of Panchla, at the moment, is staggering under a fear of death. The expression may appear to be impolite to many readers but the cruel truth can neither be avoided nor be concocted. The visit of a team of Hindu Samhati to the worst-hit areas today itself has brought such heartrending and horrific accounts out.  The earlier report was based on firsthand information while assaults on Hindus were in full swing but now the details reveal a greater horror. Contrary to beliefs that murderous assaults were limited to a handful of villages, it’s now evident that lots of areas populated by Hindus were attacked by the lethal mob simultaneously and they include the village of Biki Hakola including wards like Raypara, Kolepara, Pachhalpara, Choto Gabberia, Beltala, Daspara, Hazrapara and Gabberia Kacharigora. And all these encompass an area of 10 Everything happened as part of grievous and premeditated strategies and hence, the brutal mob was well prepared from the very beginning…
