Her mother-in-law alleged police and paramilitary forces barged into her house to physically remove Kulsuma - who had given birth to a baby boy just two hours ago - during an eviction drive at Sarkebasti village in central Assam's Hojai district, about 150km east of Guwahati.

From the LinkedIn profile, you can obtain information about someone's current job and employer, as well as their career history and education.
