They gathered at the Latasil Field in the city and staged a two hour long hunger strike. They demanded exemplary action for those mired in the recent grenade blast in Jonai. Notably, four people have been killed and as many as 85 others injured when a powerful grenade exploded at a Mishing cultural function in Jonai on March 15 evening.
