Hundreds of people in Philobari area came out to the streets to condemn the attack on “Hindi-speaking” community and blamed the police for their failure to protect the lives of innocent civilians.

“The Hindi speaking community in Assam has been facing attacks since 2000. However, the state government has not done anything to protect the lives of the people living in Tinsukia and other districts for generations and assimilated with the locals,” a demonstrator said.
