TANGLA, June 12: The recent incident of mob lynching of two artistes from Guwahati at Panjuri Kachari village under Dokmoka Police Station in Karbi Anglong district, has received widespread condemnation across the State and nation. A local NGO, Rising Hands, in association with National Jr. Pioneer College Alumni Association, joined hands with locals to symbolize solidarity with the State-wide protests and lit candles and earthen lamps in memory of the deceased at Tangla Charali on Monday evening.

Candles were lit in front of the portraits of Nilotpal Das and Abhijeet Nath and prayers were offered by a large number of college students and noted citizens of the town. Tangla Traffic IC, Mukut Ali, while terming the ghastly incident an unfortunate act, exhorted the young generation to keep faith in the police administration and not take law into their hands. He further stated that if any suspicious persons were spotted, police should be informed. He also appealed people not to pass on hate comments on social media and also to stay away from nefarious attempts of rumour mongers to disturb the peace in the society.
