It was on this fateful day that two potential youths, Abhijit Nath and Nilotpal Das of Guwahati, were mercilessly mob lynched in Karbi Anglong’s Dokmoka a year ago. Victims of a crime they did not commit, the duo is still waiting justice as the trial continues at the Nagaon Court.
Commemorating this day, the Abhi-Neel Smriti Raksha Samiti has organised a programme at the Silpukhuri Rajahuwa Naamghar today.
The day is scheduled to begin with the installation of a portrait of Abhi-Neel , which will be followed by a drawing session on the theme, ‘Art against superstition’ by artists from various parts of the State.
At 5 pm, floral tributes will be paid on the portrait of the duo. Release of a souvenir, an awareness meeting, bhajans and naam-prasanga are among the other highlights of the day-long programme.
