GUWAHATI: A shocking incident has been reported from Silapathar in Dhemaji district of Assam.

An Assamese dhol and a gamosa, which are regarded very close to the sentiments of the people of Assam, were set on fire by a youth in Silapathar.

A youth named Ranjan Sangmai reportedly set the dhol and gamosa, belonging to one of his co-performer, on fire by pouring petrol.

Sangmai allegedly set the Assamese dhol and gamosa on fire after his co-performer refused to go for an event held on Sunday night, citing personal reasons.
