Suspected ‘bullet’ hole creates tension at Assam MLA quarters

Guwahati, Nov 13 (IANS) A suspected bullet hole in a glass window of a first floor balcony at the MLA hostel premises has triggered tension in Dispur.

The incident happened on Sunday night when the state capital was celebrating Diwali.

The suspected bullet hole was noticed in the balcony of the first floor of MLA hostel. At least six legislators, including the leader of opposition in the Assam Assembly, Debabrata Saikia, live in that building.

Upon learning about the incident, a police team went to the MLA hostel and conducted a preliminary investigation. According to police, there are doubts whether the hole was created by a bullet or any other thing.

The Commissioner of Police at Guwahati, Diganta Barah said, “As per our primary investigation, the hole in the glass window does not look like a bullet; rather it may be created due to the hitting of a sharp object. Moreover, the object was probably thrown from inside of the building, not outside.”

He further said that most of the MLAs were not at the quarters on Sunday and only Saikia was present there.

“We met Debabrata Saikia and he showed us the hole in the balcony glass. The police team was investigating the whole incident,” Barah said.

Meanwhile, AIUDF MLA Rafikul Islam who also stays at that building told reporters, “This place is a very safe place in the city. All the MLAs stay here even if the ministers are not here, security is adequate. The legislators also have their own personal security guards. If someone has tried to launch an attack here, then it is definitely a matter of concern.”
