Will justice be given to the Reangs of Shikaribari, Tripura?

This report chronicles atrocities on the Reangs of Tripura who are officially classified as “Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group” by the Government of India. It all started with 37 Reang families of Shikaribari Mouja under Ambassa Sub-Division of Dhalai district being selected for a rubber plantation scheme for their economic development during 2008-2009. The Forest Department officials in order to extort money unleashed unprecedented ‘atrocity’ by filing vexatious cases while all the funds i.e. Rs. 17,31,500/- sanctioned for the 37 Reang families for rubber plantation were siphoned off by the officials.
