• Third-party political forces including PFI could be behind Dholpur eviction clash: MP Dilip Saikia


    Guwahati: BJP MP Dilip Saikia alleged that third-party political forces including Islamist outfit Popular Front of India (PFI) could be behind the attack on police personnel that occurred on Thursday evening at Dholpur village.
