CBI inquiry on Ranbir Roy’s murder case demanded

SILCHAR, Sept 25: It has been six years that Ranbir Roy was assassinated on September 25, 2003, but his case has not taken any significant turn as yet.

Demands to look into the murder case of Roy have been made time and again on behalf of his family and his well wishers, but, all pleas went to deaf ears.

Sources said a memorandum was submitted to the Asom Chief Minister for CBI inquiry on the murder case on his second death anniversary in 2005 but nothing happened. Also, the political scenario has remained silent on the murder case.

However, this year, on his sixth death anniversary, a reminiscence meeting was held at Silchar Press Club and a seven-member committee was also formed for filing a PIL in the Gauhati High Court in order to demand CBI inquiry into the murder case. The committee constitute lawyers Dibakar Bhattacharjee and Subir Dey besides other members from Silchar Press Club and the journalistic fraternity. It was decided in the meeting that every year, on the death anniversary of Roy, prizes would be awarded to reporters for investigative journalism in honour of late Ranbir Roy who brought the fore of investigative journalism in Barak Valley.
