Cachar erupts in fresh protest

Cachar district erupts in a fresh orgy of tension following the death of a person in police custody on Friday night.
Identified as Ajijur Rahman, a 55 year old man died a day after he was picked up in connection with the July 4 clash between two communities at Kallain. A police official was suspended to get rid of a violent protest on Saturday. Ajijur had complained of uneasiness and was taken to the local hospital. He was referred to Silchar Medical College Hospital but died on the way. Rahman's family members had filed an FIR at Kallain police station. A clash broke out at Kallain and adjacent areas during the 12-hour Barak valley bandh by Hindu Jagran Manch that left 22 injured and led the administration to clamp an indefinite curfew, which was lifted on Friday.
