Uneasy calm in Changsari

An uneasy calm prevails in Changsari on Tuesday a day after a women was killed in police firing.

Local residents in large number told Assam Times that the tragic incidents could have been avoided had the policemen deployed to deal with the simmering situation exercised restraint.
