Five accused of torturing TSR jawans flee to evade arrest

Agartala, May 22 (UNI) Police has launched a massive manhunt to nab the five TSR personnel who have been accused in a specific complaint by their colleague Bhojveer Singh Chauhan of assaulting him mercilessly on May 12 last.
Tripura government has already suspended accused Naib Shubedar Bipul Ranjan De, Havilder Kamal Paul and Raju Dhar and Naik Mahawar Das and Satyabrata Sinha posted in the battalion headquarters for brutally assaulting Chauhan and another jawan Jagadish Chawla hailing from Rajasthan.
The commandant of the battalion Rati Ranjan Debnath was also suspended and his movement was restricted for shielding the accused persons.
The Chauhan yesterday, who is currently undergoing treatment at the Agartala Govt Medical College (AGMC), lodged an FIR with Teliamura police station against the five accused jawans for beating him up severely and attempting to kill him.
However, when police reached the camp, all the five accused were missing and no one in the camp could provide their whereabouts.
According to police, reportedly all of them fled from the camp on May 19 night to evade the imminent arrest.
But the battalion authority did not report their absence to the government and it was only revealed when police went there to arrest them.
The police has already started to look for them in their villages and houses of their relatives. Meanwhile, police sought permission to interrogate the higher officials including the battalion commandant Debnath over the complaint and to arrest the accused persons.
Chauhan told police that he had got bullet injuries in a firing incident at Agartala in July 2011, and subsequently with the advice of the doctors he was put on light duties in medical inspection room of the battalion.
On May 11 he was assaulted by Naib Shubedar Bipul Ranjan De when he sought exemption of duty for two days.
On the next day, the same issue cropped up during distribution of duty and Chauhan and his colleague Chawla were assaulted by the five accused.
Chauhan alleged, while Chawla fled the headquarters that night, Chauhan had lied untreated, until his colleagues brought him to Teliamura hospital on May 12 night.
However, when his situation deteriorated, doctors referred him to Agartala Govt Medical College (AGMC).
But his colleagues with the instruction of the higher authority of the battalion took him to the camp instead of shifting to AGMC. “I was left untreated there for five days and I was not even able to contact my friends, family or even even police. On May 17, my health condition deteriorated, which made them nervous and finally they brought me to AGMC but did not reveal to the doctors how I was so badly injured. A day after when I became stable, I told the story to the doctors and the matter was publicised.”
“We have launched massive search against the accused and they will be arrested soon,” said OC of Teliamura Police Station Swapan Debbarma.
