His wife said, “I was alone at the bunglow when around 200 people came looking for my husband. I called him and requested not to come out or he would be killed by these people. He was at his office at that time. I was so scared seeing such a huge crowd of angry mobs but had to stay calm as my husband’s life was at stake.”
She further added, “When the rain started pouring and the crowd slowly thinned up, I called up two boys from the medical and asked them to bring the car. I and my husband somehow managed to get out of the tea garden as soon as possible.
Dr. Simanta Baruah and his wife are currently staying at a relative’s place. He has also resigned from his post in the Nirmali Tea Garden.
Meanwhile, an FIR has been registered at the Gohpur Police Station and an investigation is underway.
