Agartala, 4th May 2024:   In a tumultuous turn of events at the Boishakhi fair in Rahimpur Bazar, a violent clash between two factions has left one individual critically injured. The altercation arose over the distribution of shop spaces at the fair, escalating into a physical confrontation resulting in serious harm.

The incident took place on Saturday as tensions flared between Shahjahan Mia, a member of the fair committee, and Khurshid Alam, a representative of the Central Mela Committee. Mia, reportedly obstructed a small trader from setting up shop despite prior allocation of space. This discrepancy led to a heated exchange, culminating in Mia wielding a knife against Alam, inflicting severe wounds.
