A mob attacked forest department officials in Assam's Kokrajhar district,  injuring six of them. The mob was trying to occupy a portion of the forest department's land, following which the officers opened fire, an official. 

The mob gathered near Goraibazar village near Indo-Bhutan Border and tried to occupy forest land, following which forest department officials reached the area and asked the mob to leave.
