Inside Northeast contacted Swati Bidhan Barua, Sr Advocate and Associate Vice-Chairperson of the State Transgender Board. "The people came from Kolkata, Siliguri and some were even caught to be faking to earn money from the local market. Following the confrontation led to a fight where they beat the local ones near Gharana in Maligaon. They have contacted me and I already informed the DCP and some of them have gone to DCP office.
