Uneasy situation in Mancachar

An uneasy situation prevails in Mancachar where an indefinite curfew is in force. The curfew was clamped from Sunday evening following clashes in which two policemen were injured a police vehicle was set on fire.
Trouble brewed when people from Garo Hills, Meghalaya, crossed the Kanu river and came to Mancachar for shopping. Then a section of the local residents beat up some of them. In retaliation, when people from Mancachar went to Monabari, Meghalaya, they were beaten up. Tension started escalating further on Sunday when a body was found floating on Kanu river.
