Headman Sanjit Rabha said that when he came to know about the meeting, he, along with the village president, went to the meeting and requested them to stop the meeting and warned them not to organize any meetings related to Meghalaya on Assam land.
"After that, the Meghalaya supporters started arguing with us and they claimed that the village was under Meghalaya. They even tried to attack us. So we left the area immediately and ran from the area and took shelter in a safe place," said village headman Sanjit Rabha.
The president of the village, Ruhini Kumar Rabha alleged that Meghalaya supporters were trying to establish a school in Assam's Bhalukmari village, which would be run by the Meghalaya government. So, they went there to stop them and then the incident happened.
After the incident, an Assam police team led by Boko PS OC Phanindra Chandra Nath and Boko Revenue Circle Officer Dibash Bordoloi went to the village and discussed the matter with both supporters.
Boko Revenue Circle Officer Dibash Bordoloi said that due to some misunderstanding such unwanted situations take place. "But now the situation is under control and we discussed the matter thoroughly so that peace prevails in the area," he said.
