“About 26 of them were rescued. At the same time, the outlawed Yansakai went to the police station and threatened to set the police station ablaze.

“They engaged the police officers and the military that was there into a gun duel. They were using this locally made Dane guns that are using plugs,” he stated.
No life was lost in the incident, owing to the intervention of security forces, but a policeman and a soldier were injured while rescuing the victims. (Channels TV)
