Panic grips Eastern Assam’s Tinsukia district as two persons were shot dead by armed miscreants at a grocery shop in Rupai Siding under Doomdooma police station late Friday night.

Out of the two deceased persons, one has been identified as Jit Verma, who was an employee of the grocery shop but the second person’s identity is yet to be identified.

Tinsukia SP Mugdha Jyoti Mahanta, who rushed to the spot after the incident said that one among the two attackers has already been arrested and a massive search operation has been launched to nab the second miscreant.
