One of the locals stated, ” Last evening around 5pm a girl came running to my shop. I was little away from my shop and was watching her approaching my son. When asked, she said she wanted to make a call to her husband in Mayong. She was crying and when I asked her about the matter she revealed about the wrong practices going on in the locality.”
