Let­ter with bul­lets asks As­sam MLA to leave BJP within 15 days

The Hitavada - - PASTIME -

AN FIR has been reg­is­tered against un­known per­sons af­ter As­sam BJP MLA Aminul Haque Laskar re­ceived a let­ter, along with two bul­lets, di­rect­ing him to leave the party within 15 days as he was a “Mus­lim”. The let­ter to Laskar, rep­re­sent­ing the Sonai con­stituency in Cachar district, came from an un­known group ‘Save Se­cure and De­vel­op­ment Pro­tec­tion Force of Mus­lim, BarakVal­ley Zone’, po­lice said.

“We have reg­is­tered an FIR against un­known per­sons for a threat­en­ing let­ter to Laskar on Sun­day. Two live car­tridges of .32 pis­tol also came with the let­ter,” Silchar Po­lice Sta­tion Of­fi­cer-in-Charge In­dra­jit Chakraborty said.

The case was reg­is­tered un­der Sections 153A (pro­mot­ing en­mity be­tween dif­fer­ent groups on grounds of re­li­gion, race, etc) and 506 (crim­i­nal in­tim­i­da­tion) of the In­dian Pe­nal Code.

“I re­ceived the let­ter by post. It said the BJP and the RSS are com­mu­nal or­gan­i­sa­tions and they are work­ing against the Mus­lims. So, be­ing a Mus­lim, I should not be in that party,” he added.

He said the let­ter told him to quit the party within 15 days. Laskar, how­ever, doubted the au­then­tic­ity of the de­mand, say­ing it might be a handi­work of syn­di­cate mafias in­volved in urea, drugs and land “against which I have been fight­ing”. The MLA said he will con­tinue his fight against anti-so­cial el­e­ments and de­manded a thor­ough probe.
