"We appeal for peace on the border. We do not want the common people's blood to be shed any more. We urge the state and central governments to adopt strict measures on the border. We will take out a peace rally in the border areas" said Atul Bora
AGP general secretary Kamala Kalita in his complaint before the commission said, "Even after the brutal killing of the girl, police allegedly did not visit the place for two days nor did they send her body for post-mortem. The state government didn't provide any security to her family and other villagers. This is a clear violation of human rights."
