Protest against attack

Tura, April 3: The business community in Williamnagar today protested against the suspected militant attack in which a liquor store manager was injured. As a mark of protest, the business community downed shutters from morning to evening.

The market association in Williamnagar also met deputy commissioner Vijay Mantri and superintendent of police Davis Marak, seeking protection. “We kept the market closed as a mark of protest. We want the administration to look into the matter. If militants can attack in Williamnagar, what is the scenario in rural areas?” asked Grething R. Marak, secretary of Williamnagar United Merchants’ Association.

A liquor store manager was shot at yesterday afternoon in Williamnagar, following which the assailants escaped.

There was a huge hue and cry outside the deputy commissioner’s office, as people demanded the immediate arrest of the culprits. The situation was controlled by the SP, who assured that police would step up action. The market association has apprised the deputy commissioner and SP on the role of CRPF personnel, who were allegedly mute spectators to the incident.
