AIZAWL, Aug 5 - The Mizoram government has ordered a magisterial enquiry to investigate the violent incident at Chawngte yesterday in which a student of class-XI was killed when agitating mob and police clashed. Lawngtlai District Magistrate has also been appointed to take necessary steps.
One PSO each has been given to the 17 MDCs of Chakma Autonomous District Council for their security.
A 20-year-old student was on Tuesday allegedly killed during a clash in Chawngte town between police and Mizoram Chakma Students Union members in which houses of many politicians were ransacked and several vehicles damaged.
MCSU members allegedly attacked the Chawngte Police Station in the headquarters of Chakma Autonomous District Council where student leaders were detained, prompting police to fire in the air in which Agosh Chakma, a student of class XI, was killed. The MCSU was protesting alleged fraudulent recruitment of 101 employees by the CADC in January last and demanded sacking of the employees by organising a bandh in Chawngte.
