According to information, a team of police led by Officer-in-Charge of Mangaldai Police Station, Inspector Niranjan Barua at about 9.30 pm on Thursday noticed three youths with a girl and a woman dining in a doubtful manner at NP Dhaba at Punia near here.

Initially, the trio identified themselves as Hindus, but as the Officer-in-Charge checked their identity cards, they failed to conceal their real identity.
