Police lathicharge AIUDF supporters

Hundreds of AIUDF supporters had carried out a march at Mandia under Baghbar assembly constituency in protest against alleged corruption in the social welfare department, Barpeta Additional Superintendent of Police Rosie Kalita said.

The protestors were marching towards the Child Development Project Office at Mandia when cane wielding policemen stopped them. Police also arrested three AIUDF members, Kalita said.

However, there were no reports of any serious injury to any person.

Kalita said, "We had to lathicharge to control the mob. Moreover, the protestors had not even taken any permission from the district administration for their agitation."
