As per available information, both Das and Ali called people and engaged in a brawl which continued for more than an hour.

“The fight broke over a pity issue and then later boiled into a major brawl. We found that 16 people got injured, 11 from one community and 5 from the other. Out of them, eight have been referred to Silchar Medical College and Hospital for better treatment,” informed Superintendent of Police Cachar Manabendra Dev Ray.

Apart from Dev Ray, DC Cachar Barnali Sharma, DIG Dilip Dey, additional SP Jagadish Das, ADC Sumit Sattavan rushed to the spot to bring the situation under control. Local MLA Amar Chand Jain also reached the spot after getting information about the incident.
