Assam Parliamentary Affairs Minister Nilamoni Sen Deka , while replying to a question on behalf of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi informed to the House that ‘The Assam Government has decided to institute a judicial probe into the incidents of killing of a minor girl by militants in Chirang district of Assam’s Bodoland Territorial Areas Districts (BTAD) last week.’ And added that the government of Assam would approach the Gauhati High Court soon for the judicial enquiry.

It was mentioned that the 16 year old Priya Basumatary was shot dead by anti-talk faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) militants on August 20.

The gory killing of the girl that had taken place in front of her parents, village members and even media persons happened a few hours after five NDFB(S) terrorists were killed at Dwimuguri in Chirang district in an encounter by a joint team of Assam Police and Army. They suspected that the girl had informed the police about the militants taking shelter in the village and had killed her to avenge the killing of their comrades by security forces.

The Assam Chief Minister, who had announced that her name will be recommended for National Bravery Award and that the State would institute a Bravery Award in her name, however stated that “She was just a brave school girl, who only fall victim to the militants’ violence.”

On Monday the opposition parties in the Assam Legislative Assembly had rocked the proceedings of the House and demanded for a discussion to be held over the gory killing of the minor school girl and also over the recent violence in Golaghat district located along the Assam-Nagaland border and subsequent police atrocities on innocent civilians.
