Nagaon AASU leaders and workers thronged  the incident site and dharna demanding immediate arrest of the main culprit Zakir Hussain for capital punishment.

Talking to www.assamties.org, the protestors said they won’t relent until and unless the miscreants are not taken to the gallows. Some other further blocked the Nagaon-Dhing road for a couple of hours raising the demand.

On the other hand, local residents in large number this morning vandalized the house where Zakir, his wife and children lived in forcing the security men to step in.
