Tension was high in places such as Sora, Lilong, Hatta, etc. The second incident of burning another police Gypsy occurred when the law enforcing agencies were conducting an eviction drive for a highway expansion project survey near Mantripukhuri CRPF camp under Heingang police station around 11am today, the source added.
