It is a shamful act for a state enriched with cultural sanity. Horrendous act in the State. Not only the State police dept but every man, youth, woman should punish them. We always think nothern india can bear such problem and north east india is best known for its respect towards women. This act is a warning towards the starting of attrocites in the name of woman. lets get more aware and stop this at thebeginning itself..punish the goons
