RTI activist refutes claim
THOUBAL, Sep 15: RTI activist and advocate Nazima today said what Jalin alias Khalin of Urup said to the media yesterday are all baseless lies.
Speaking to media persons at her residence, she alleged that Khalin came to her residence on September 10 and threatened her to withdraw an RTI she filed.
The next day when she was returning home from her office, men numbering around 20 to 30 led by Khalin stopped her, she further said. She said Khalin shouted to his men to kill her while saying whatever the cost he will bear.
Timely intervention by the local people and Irilbung Police rescued her, she said. It is very unfortunate that Khalin even tried to falsify Peoples Right Protection Committee secretary Md Wahidur Rahaman, who tried to tell the truth to the people through the media, she claimed. She said the RTI filed by her is in the interest of the public and trying to bring politics here is unfortunate. She added she is ready to face any eventuality in the interest of public good.
