He also urged the public to stand firm till justice is brought.
Paul Leo, Convener, Alternative Arrangement and an ex-President, UNC, said that the two were mercilessly killed like an animal in the jungle. Various cases of murder, assault, harassment, rapes etc. on people coming from the North East were reported every now and then just because, they come from the NE.

The AA convener also questioned the central Govt. why they are still slumbering when uncountable such incidents were meted out to the people, coming from the NE region and why people from the NE, India are targeted in every metro cities of India.
If India thinks it is not complete without the North Eastern States, the convener continued, the central Govt. also should protect the precious lives of the people coming from the NE.
A John, Town committee President, commented that people of the NE too, should think of how to survive on their own if such killings, tortures, harassments, etc. are to continue likewise.
He asked the general public to wait and watch what the central Govt. will do in future for the protection of the people coming from the NE region. The gathering came to an end after paying condolence to the two departed souls.
