Magh Bihu celebrations turned tragic as two people were killed and at least three others, including a woman and a six year old child were seriously injured in a wild water buffalo attack in two villages of Biswanath, Assam. Jayanta Das of Motok village and Sukur Ali of Salmari died after being attacked by the wild water buffalo. The buffalo had terrorised the people of the area for past two days. The locals said that the response of the forest department officials was slow and delayed. The deaths triggered anger among the villagers and angry mob vandalised the forest department office and set the office and a forest department vehicle on fire.
