GUWAHATI: Troubles for Aimee Baruah’s Dimasa film Semkhor seem to have become never-ending.

At least five Dimasa organisations have alleged that an 84-day-old baby had died during the shooting of Aimee Baruah’s Semkhor movie, which has been under massive controversies.

Five Dimasa bodies have now written to President Droupadi Murmu seeking justice for the family of the baby girl, who died during the shooting of the film in Semkhor in Dima Hasao district of Assam.

The Dimasa orgamisations in Assam that have written to President Droupadi Murmu are Jadikhe Naisho Hoshom (JNH- Dimasa apex body), All Dimasa Students Union (ADSU), Dima Hasao District Committee, Dimasa Student Union (DSU), Central Committee, United Dimasa Youths (UDY) and Dimasa Students Community Guwahati (DSCG).

“An 84-days-old baby died four days after the shooting of the film Semkhor due to exposure to cold,” the organisations alleged.

“Aimee Baruah did not follow the complete legal formalities while shooting for the film Semkhor in Dima Hasao district and as a result, a baby girl had lost her life after being cast in the film,” the organisations allege.
