Muslim truckers beaten up

Several truckers, belonging to the Muslim community, were allegedly beaten up in Arunachal Pradesh, following which they fled to neighbouring Assam, leaving their vehicles behind, officials said. In a letter to the Kurung Kumey deputy commissioner, District Food & Civil Supplies Officer Chukhu Jirjo said the truckers, who unloaded rice at Koloriang, were beaten up by a group of men on Saturday at a place between Sangram and Palin in Kra Daadi district. Their trucks were also damaged in the attack, following which they left the vehicles behind and fled to Assam, the letter said. Jirjo urged the deputy commissioner to take up the matter with the DCs of Kra Daadi and Lower Subansiri districts to ensure the safety of truck drivers and their helpers, without whom transportation of essential commodities would be affected. Sangha Tagik, the chairman of the Parsi-Parlo-based Tani Taw Multipurpose Cooperative Society and a wholesale dealer of PDS items, alleged that Muslim workers were being chased away, forcing them to flee to Assam. When contacted, Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar and Inspector General of Police Chukhu Appa expressed concern over the matter and said the DCs and superintendents of police of the respective districts have been asked to take action immediately.
