   Com. Balindranath Roy, Part-Time Night Guard of Domohani S.O. was shot dead by a gang of armed dacoits last night, after a vain attempt to loot the cash and valuables of the office. 
    Com. Roy was on duty as usual last night, when the gang broke into the office. Despite several attempts they could not budge the lock of the Godrej Defender Safe of the office. It appeared that at the time of their frustrated departure, the armed miscreants shot Com. Roy on his forehead, which caused a fatal injury to bleed him to death.
    Alongwith his service as a Part-time employee, he was closely associated with our organisation from the very beginning and held the responsibility of the President of the Postal Workers' Union, Jalpaiguri Division. His sudden death will cost a lot to the movement of the downtrodden Part-time workers of the division.
   Com. Roy is survived by his ailing wife, two married daughters and an unemployed son, who passed the Madhyamik (10th). The family was in stringent financial condition, without any land or property.
  OUR  UNION deeply mourns the demise of Com. Roy and acknowledges his ultimate sacrifice for the department. This incident has once again pointed out the insecurity of Postal staffs holding the responsibility of huge Govt cash. In no other Govt department staffs are left with so much Govt property with absolutely no arrangement of security. We are looking forward to see in what shape the department acknowledges the sacrifice of Com. Roy. Circle Union has already contacted the Regional and Circle Administration to explore relief to the bereaved family. A sum of Rs.7000/- has already been approved from Circle Welfare Fund. 
    OUR Union requests all Branch & divl Unions to wear Black Badge in condolence tomorrow or on the day after tomorrow and display posters on Notice Boards and offices demanding arrest and punishment of the murderers. Some more organisational decision will be declared shortly.
