The incident took place where women protesters in large number the thronged the house of the Zomi Reunification Organisation (ZRO) president Thanglianpau Guite New in the New Lamka area. But nobody was there inside it.
Then a section of protesters initially set on fire a vehicle in front of the house while some others stormed into the house premises set afire it forcing the security forces to step in.
The protestors rued that the Guite has been instigating the hills area MLAs not to resign acting on the mounting pressure from all sides. Seven protestors sustained in the incident while the condition of three of them is said to be serious injured to be admitted in the hospital.
This is the second orgy of violence in the restive north eastern state which broke out last month where 9 persons died when protesters burnt down several houses owned by a section of MLAs hours after the assembly cleared the passage of 3 controversial bills.
