SILAPATHAR, March 11 - The situation in Silapathar town remained unchanged even on the sixth day today following the unsavoury incident, with indefinite curfew being promulgated after torching of 7 shops by miscreants in the wee hours of March 10.

On the other hand, Simen Sapori continues to be under night curfew. Only candidates appearing in the high school and higher secondary examinations were allowed to go to their centres today. Security personnel were keeping strict vigil on the situation and have cordoned off the town area.

The number of arrests for vandalising the AASU office went up to 37, while no major incident was reported after the fire incident last night. In all, 30 persons were arrested for violating curfew, Dhemaji Superintendent of Police Nilesh Sawakare informed.
