Saitu INC candidate allegedly assaults BJP supporters

Indian National Congress candidate of 51-Saitu assembly constituency Lamtinthang Haokip along with his three brothers allegedly assaulted the family members of Kholep village chief

Kholep village chief's daughter Mercy Haokip has alleged that Indian National Congress candidate of 51-Saitu assembly constituency Lamtinthang Haokip along with his three brothers entered their house and assaulted her family members on Monday night.

In a video clip sent to media, Mercy said, “On Monday night at about 10:30 pm INC candidate of Saitu assembly constituency Lamtinthang Haokip along with his three brothers break through her house and assault her family members and destroy some of her properties.”

She said the reason might be that her family is a strong supporter of the BJP. She strongly condemned the act where principal of Eklavya, Ngamkhohao Hapkip who is the elder brother of the candidate allegedly broke all the chairs in the house.

“If Lamtinthang can bring a change in the assembly constituency after winning the coming by-election then people can cast their vote for him,” she said.

Some video clips were also shared on social media and in the video clip INC candidate along with his security were seen breaking through the house of village chief.
