Magisterial probe into mob attack on Rumi

Caught in a barrage of criticism, Karimganj Deputy Commissioner Debeswar Malakar on Monday ordered the inquiry into the incident of mob attack on Rumi Nath and Jaki Jakir. The report of the inquiry is to be submitted within 15 days. But the incident still sparks off violent protests and bandh in south Assam's Barak Valley.
On the other hand, three personnel security officers of the MLA were suspended due to dereliction of duty. The PSOs had allegedly failed to protect the MLA and her husband and had fled from the spot when the mob barged into the hotel where the duo were staying. Violent protests by supporters and opponents of the controversial MLA have been going on in Barak Valley since the last three days. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad, the RSS and the Hindu Jagran Manch have called for a day-long bandh in the entire Barak Valley on July 24.
