Uneasy calm in Jagun

Tension seems to have been escalating in Tinsukia a day after one person was killed and ten others have been injured when a section of people clashed to security forces during an eviction drive at a forest area.

The incident took place on Sunday afternoon when security forces were on a drive to evict the encroachers in the Namfai forest area in Jagun.

A section of the encroachers tuned violent forcing the security forces to lob tear gas shell. As the situation went out of control, the security forces resorted to firing where one person was killed and ten others sustained injury.
