Papai Saha was shot dead on July 11 last during a protest rally of the Congress in Agartala. The youth was allegedly killed by TSR jawans.However, based on forensic report, the police had arrested another youth of the locality for the killing.

The issue got complicated with the allegation against the TSR by the victim’s family. (UNI)
