THE settlers held a procession in the evening in Manikchari with the
bodies of three settlers who were killed when the Jummas resisted
their land grab attempt earlier in the day.
At one stage, at 7:25pm, the angry settlers set fire to 8 houses
belonging to Jumma people at Mahamuni Tila.
The settlers also looted Jumma houses in Manikchari bazaar and Rajpara
after the Jummas fled from their homes.
More settlers have been gathered in Manikchari. Jummas fear that there
could be more such attacks in the night.
