Paralyzing strike in Tinsukia

Normal life remains totally paralyzed in Tinsukia district following the 24 hour long strike on Thursday in protest against the firing incident.

Vehicles have refused to ply on the road. Shops and markets have remained closed for the day under the impact of the strike.

Apart from exemplary punishment for the guilty constable, local organizations have demanded a huge Rs 10 lakh compensation and a job for the victim’s family member.
