Hundreds injured in Dhemaji

Scores of people have been injured when police flogged a huge gathering in Dhemaji as they were protesting against a set of anti government policies. The incident took place when the people led by KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi were waiting to raise their demands before the deputy commissioner who refused to come out of his chamber. As a section of protesters tried to sneak into the office, police and para military forces sprang upon them and started beating up the people. Beside blankfiring the security personnel lobbed teargas shells to disperse the protesters. Later talking to reporters, Gogoi said the government has no moral right to continue after it tried to gag a serious protest.
