Curfew in Malaipathar

Curfew has been imposed in Malaipathar in Goalpara district amid tension after two persons were killed this morning when the police opened fire to control a 3000-strong mob on the rampage.

Seven protesters have been injured in the firing. Eight cops are also hurt. Police had to open fire to control a crowd that went berserk after the body of a 50-year-old cowherd, who was missing since Sunday, was found this morning in the Mailapathar area.
