The Assam police DIG further said that the Batadrava police station will be upgraded to inspector-level police station in the coming days.

In addition, a fire fighting wing has also been established in Batadrava, he added.

It may be noted that an angry mob set the police station on fire on May 21 and also attacked two police officers on duty after a villager was killed in police custody.

A massive furore erupted with people questioning the police’s role in the death of one person in custody. Violence also broke out with reported injuries on both sides.
