According to local sources, the situation in Langadu is returning to normal two days after the attack took place, but a number of adivasis have yet to return to their homes. Some of them took shelter in Langadu’s Tintila Pagoda. For-hire motorcycles, the only transport vehicle of all residents in Langadu, are yet to start plying on the roads. Langadu Motorcycle Owners Welfare Association Vice President Md Hanif said: “We did not instruct anyone to shut the service. Many of the drivers fled the area fearing arrest.” Most of the owners closed down their shops and markets.
