The Tragedy was bad and still people are frightened from both Garo as well as Rabha. In Boko even after so much has happened the Garos are ill treated and same was summoned to the DC, Police etc but no action taken only on the garos the cases is lodged. In Mendhipathar is seems a Buncker was found outside with a Board BIO-GAS handled by Rabhas some cash and weapons were recovered. There are many such incidents are there... Both the Govt. have to understand they getting vote from them too and have to protect with eviroment of Peace.
