Assam protest turns violent, 2 killed

Guwahati: Two people, including a 9-year-old boy, have been killed and at least 20 people injured and more than a dozen vehicles set ablaze after police fired shots in the air and teargassed those opposing a government eviction drive in Assam's main city of Guwahati on Wednesday.
Shoot-at-sight orders were issued after the mob attacked pedestrians and vehicles, a police officer said.
At least five government-run city buses and many cars were set on fire as protestors resorted to pelting stones at security forces, he said.
"Rioters indulging in torching of vehicles and destroying public property would be dealt with severely with shoot-on-sight orders issued," Assam IGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta said.
