Rebels torch tractor of
councilor’s family


Six suspected rebels carrying short firearms torched a tractor valued at P1 million at the sugarcane farm owned by the family of a Bacolod City councilor in Brgy. Cabacungan, La Castellana town, Negros Occidental, yesterday.

Bacolod Councilor Al Victor Espino, son of Delia Agustin-Espino, LN Agustin Farms president, said the suspects arrived at their farm in Hacienda Vicenta at about 6 a.m. and asked driver Hansel Carpio to alight from the tractor.

Carpio reported to the police that the suspects poured gasoline on the tractor and burned it then told him that they did it because the owners of the farm refused to pay revolutionary taxes.moremoremore
