According to the Officer in-charge, L Ori, the incident had occurred near Ruksin Pale Bazar and Jonai border during the Tuesday market, when the alleged person who is said to be mentally unsound grabbed a five-year-old Mishing girl, who was selling vegetables and is a Jonai native; and tried to take her away.

“But the man was stopped by onlookers when the girl screamed for help and the mob thrashed the man before handing him over to Ruksin Police personnel that were present nearby,” Ori said.

"Later, the man was sent to the nearest hospital as he had sustained serious injury. We tried talking to him and asked for his name but was unsuccessful,” he added.
