He said that he had to look after his wife, a two-year old baby and his mother by selling vegetables at Balajan Tiniali market. On that fateful day he was in the market to sell vegetables when suddenly a bullet hit him near the stomach and operation was done but after the operation, he is not out of danger as he was fitted with artificial pipe to pass the stool and his health is deteriorating day-by-day. He appealed to the Government of Assam to extend more fincial assistance for complete treatment saying that the amount he received immediately after the incident was not at all sufficient.
