Barak valley burning in violence

Barak valley still erupts in violence even a week after the mob attack on MLA Rumi Nath and her second husband Jaki Jakir. In a fresh orgy of untoward incident, miscreants set on fire a temple at Maijgram in Karimganj district where Congress MLA Rumi Nath and her second husband were beaten up. The blaze was doused on Friday morning after villagers noticed the incident. Police enquiry is going on. Nath, who represents the Borkhola assembly constituency in Barak Valley, had created a furore by announcing her marriage with Jacky Jakir without divorcing her first husband.


Meanwhile, Silchar Press Club in an emergency meeting has demanded a probe into the attack on three journalists allegedly by the supporters of the MLA and Jakir at Kalain on June 29.
