Tripura: Protest against Bru resettlement turns violent, 1 killed

Nov 21, 2020 19:10 IST

1 person has been killed in alleged police firing and 5 others have been injured after a protest against resettlement of Bru people turned violent in Tripura's Panisagar sub-division. The police have said that they opened fire to control the crowd. The protesters reportedly tried to block the National Highway 8 on Saturday and also set police vans on fire. This is the fifth day of protest by the locals against Centre's decision to rehabilitate around 35,000 tribal Bru refugees from Mizoram back to Tripura.
