A student was hacked to death and seven others were injured following a clash emerged out between an angry mob and policemen in Assam’s Silchar city, said officials on Thursday.

However, police claimed to have control the situation, simmering tension prevailed in and around the city after the incident that held late Wednesday evening.

The incident took place when two groups of people were fighting over a disputed plot of land.

“Based on information that there were clashes between two groups of people over a piece of land, a police team went there to settle the matter. However, the irate people rounded up the policemen and assaulted them,” Cachar Superintendent of Police Rajveer Singh said on Thursday.

“Although the police could contain the situation initially, the people later came out in huge numbers and blocked the busy National Highway No. 6 that connects Silchar and Shillong and pelted the police team with stones and other vehicles plying on the highway,” he said.

“As the situation turned violent, the police resorted to firing in the air. However, one of the bullets hit a 17-year-old student unfortunately, who was also a part of the mob,” Singh added.

The two civilians and five policemen sustained injuries in the incident.

“The situation is under control now and we have deployed additional forces to ensure that there is no escalation of the situation,” Singh added.

Uttar Pradesh Congress president Ajay Kumar Lallu and party workers were detained while trying to march towards Raj Bhavan in Lucknow during a protest against the new farm laws.

Lallu said: “I want to say that I welcome the vaccine. I would like to thank the scientists who have developed it. It is the duty of the government to help people in times of a pandemic. When the pandemic struck, people contributed through money and other ways. Now that the vaccine is here, my primary demand is that it should be provided to people for free.

CM Yogi Adityanathji should get the vaccine first because that will help people get rid of all the misconceptions about the vaccine.”

Earlier, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav said he would not take the “BJP’s vaccine”. Following criticism, he had subsequently tweeted the same day that he had “full confidence” in the ability of scientists, but would not take the BJP’s “political vaccine”.
