The great BETRAYAL, ANNEXATION & the UPRISINGS in Assam [cached]

On the eve of the Anglo-Burmese war in Feb 1824, David Scott, the Agent to the Governor General on the North Eastern Frontier assured the Assamese of non-interference by a proclamation issued declaring that they were not led by the thirst of conquest but were forced to defend the frontier.

David Scott estimated the revenue of Western or lower Assam at Rs. 3, 00,000 and of Eastern or Upper Assam at Rs. 1, 00,000. The British, reluctant to annex Assam for less revenue return, never thought that they had occupied a treasure house of rich forestry, coal and oil and a vast sparsely populated fertile land for future tea cultivation.
The British Government sought David Scott's advice. He was later appointed as the Senior Commissioner of Western Assam with head quarters at Guwahati. Upper Assam was placed under Colonel Richards with headquarters at Rangpur. Scott submitted a proposal of retaining Western Assam from Goalpara up to Biswanath under British Government and Eastern Assam from Biswanath to Buridihing under an Ahom prince under British protection paying an annual tribute. Scott recommendations were based on his observations that since the people of Western Assam were accustomed to casual foreigners rule, it could be permanently annexed and since the Ahom nobility was not used to any foreign rule for the last 600 years, it might lead to alienation of the Ahom nobility.
Accordingly, in 1828, the British Government annexed Lower Assam permanently but didn't restore Upper Assam to an Ahom prince because of the fear that the Assam king wouldn't remain loyal to the British for a long time. Chandrakanta Singha was described as dangerous to trust by David Scott.
David Scott laid the foundation of the British administration in Assam.
On his re-trial, Captain Neufville, the political agent of Upper Assam recommended mercy for his tender age and David Scott commuted the death sentenced to seven years imprisonment.
David Scott confirmed the death sentence of Peoli Barphukan and Jeoram Dihingia, they were hanged at Sivasagar. The other convict rebel leaders were sent to Dacca jail for fourteen years imprisonment with confiscation of their properties.
