Police had to fire on agitating mob following protestors going berserk during the shutdown. The shutdown is called to oppose the government’s decision to rehabilitate thousands of refugees.
A senior police officer, who do not want to be named told ET, “Agitators pelted stone and blocked National Highway 8 in Panisagar town. ”
The area is witnessing shutdown against government’s decision to rehabilitate around 35,000 tribal Bru refugees from Mizoram back to Tripura.
