Black Friday tribute song

A song written in honour of 12 students shot dead by police in the Indian state of Meghalaya has attracted a cult following for the band Northwind as well as death threats.

The shootings were the single largest acts of violence in the towns of Tura and Williamnagar since independence from the British.

Friday 30 September 2005 has become known locally as "Black Friday".
