3 Cong workers assaulted

By Correspondent

TURA, May 27 - The situation in Ampati continue to remain tense prior to the Assembly constituency going to vote tomorrow, after three Congress workers were allegedly beaten up by a group of people in Bollongitok in the constituency in the early hours today.

While NPP claimed the group was beaten up by villagers for trying to influence them to vote, Congress claimed the assault was a targeted one.

The incident occurred at about 12.30 am in the village with the three Congress workers receiving minor injuries. The victims reportedly belong to Mukdangra village.

�They were on their way when they were targeted by NPP workers. The villagers had nothing to do with the assault and it was all the handiwork of NPP workers. The three were not campaigning nor were they distributing money,� said MPYC president Richard Marak.

The injured were given first aid and moved to hospital for further medical care. They, however, did not register any complaint. �We are looking into the matter but will have to wait until a case is filed by the victims,� said South West Garo Hills SP Bobby Momin. NPP, however, alleged that the group was there in the village to campaign and lure people with money. Police, however, stated that there was no money found on the victims.
