I am ashamed by the gruesome atrocity that happened in Beltola, specially with that woman. What happened to the Assamese people and their culture? People like us, who leaves away from their homeland, are most affected by this kind of news. We portray ourselves as the most tolerant people, where people from different ethnicity and religion have been living in harmony. Its hard to believe that things like this and dowry has crept into our society. The State Government, and also, the people of Assam should take immediate action to these kind of menace, and see that no further incidence of these brutalities to women ever happens again.
