Violence continues in Assam, death toll rises to six
Indefinite curfew was imposed in Assam's troubled Kokrajhar district Thursday after suspected militants shot dead a man and stabbed another.
The stray incidents of violence, continuing in Kokrajhar and Baksa districts of the Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD), had claimed six lives and left six injured since last week, officials said. The army, which was called in Wednesday night to handle the situation, carried out a flag march in all sensitive areas of Kokrajhar Thursday.
While the first incident took place during curfew, when suspected militants stabbed one Abul Kalam, the second incident took place in Telipara where suspected militants shot dead one Nirisan Basumatary. Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi asked Director General of Police Jayanta Narayan Choudhury to proceed to BTAD to take stock of the situation and restore normalcy, said a statement by the chief minister's office.
Choudhury was also told to take strong punitive action against those perpetrating the violence. Gogoi also asked Minister for Industries and Power Pradyut Bordoloi to proceed to BTAD.
