A few of these miscreants started indiscriminate firing on the villagers who were running out of their houses where two persons were killed and several others injured.

It ,may be noted that more than 100 people were killed, over two hundred others have been injured in a string of strikes by two groups of miscreants during the last two months. More than 50 villages in the hills district have been reduced to ashes in the incident.

Everybody knows what's happening & why it's happening & by whose politics. But there's a saying "the sun never sets in the British Empire" but you can see where are they now. Some or the other day a time will come back - "THE TIME OF DIMASA PEOPLE"
