Assam: Dacoity killed in a police encounter in the Cachar district

Dacoities are reportedly identified as Kamrul Islam and Amrul Hussain, who are residents of Sonai Saidpur and Sonai Krishnapur in Cachar, respectively.

Police fired at them as they tried to escape police detention. After being injured by the ammunition, the duo died on the spot.

Police reportedly arrested a duo from Jorhart a few days before allegedly involved in several crimes.

In April of this year, Dakoit, who was allegedly trying to escape from police detention, was shot dead.

The encounter took place at Sonai member Aulyatilla, with two more recent police encounters.

Dakoit, identified as Samim Ahmed Rasker, injured his right leg when he tried to escape by attacking a police officer.
