Guwahati: Even though the government in Assam has announced several strict measures against motor vehicle rule violators, wrong way violations have always been left unseen by the authorities.

With such a situation going on, trucks usually are seen taking the wrong way on major routes to save time and fuel but this leads to a major risk of accidents and loss of human life.

On Friday, after one such similar incident, an angry mob set a truck ablaze in Guwahati’s Boragaon after the truck which took a wrong way mowed down a two-wheeler resulting in the death of two persons.
