|Three killed in Tripura|
AGARTALA, April 16 - A young tribal boy killed three people, including a woman, and injured another in northern Tripura after a brief altercation late on Sunday night, the police said.
“After some quarrel, a minor tribal boy killed three tribals with an axe at Paiseram Karbari Para village under Manikpur Police Station late on Sunday night,” Dhalai district police chief Sudipta Das told this news agency.
He said that the accused, now in police custody, might be a juvenile and that is why they are not disclosing his details.
The victims are Henabati Tripura (45), Kenachan Chakma (68), Subal Kanti Chakma (45), while Priyalal Chakma was injured and admitted to a hospital.
The Opposition Congress, however, accused the ruling BJP of masterminding the incident to vitiate the atmosphere during the Lok Sabha elections. – IANS
