Killing of Reang wife of a Mizo man casts shadow over continuing repatriation process

By Our Correspondent

Agartala October 10 ,2019 : The tangled repatriation process of Reang tribal refugees from Mizoram sheltered in six north Tripura camps in Kanchanpur subdivision suffered  a major jolt as the Reang wife of a Mizo youth was allegedly burnt alive by her Mizo husband on Tuesday last in Tlangsanga village under Mammit district of southwestern Mizoram . Police sources from Kanchanpur said that Linda (28) alias Kahgrakti, wife of a Mizo youth Vanlalvena was burnt alive on the nigh of Tuesday , sparking deep resentment and anger among the inmates of six Reang refugee camps of Kanchanpur subdivision after the news had spreads . No action has as yet been taken by Mizoram police authority. 

Yesterday all  top leaders of Reang refugees organized under the banner of a number of NGOs held a meeting at Multipurpose Centre at Naisingpara refugee camps raised the demand for a magisterial inquiry into the dousing of the innocent housewife and stalling of the repatriation process besides payment of compensation of at leas Rs 20 lakhs to the victim.

The NGOs also condemned the dispatch of vehicles by Mizoram government for taking back the refugees as a 'fruitless exercise' , asserting that unless their demands communicated to the Mizoram government were fulfilled the refuges would not go back. Condemning the coercive attempts of the Mizoram government through its intelligence officers and employees to force the refugees to return , the leaders of refugees said tha the Mizoram government had not yet initiated any confidence building measures to assure the refugees of their safety upon return. A vile campaign of threat and intimidation has been going on in social media to prevent the return of refugees . In this condition the refugees can nor return , the leaders said.
