PM calls for end to Assam violence, assures proper probe

Guwahati: Three people were killed and two injured as fresh violence broke out in Assam's communally volatile Kokrajhar district, police said Tuesday.

The killings took place Monday night, a day after four bodies were recovered, prompting authorities to impose indefinite curfew in Kokrajhar district and in the Dhubri and Bilasipara subdivisions of Dhubri district.

According to an official, unidentified men killed three people and injured two in the Raanighuli area on the Kokrajhar-Dhubri border Monday night. Indefinite curfew has been imposed in the entire district.

The two injured have been admitted to the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital.

Tension escalated in the Bodoland Territorial Areas District (BTAD) that comprises Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri district. Violence between the Bodos and Bengali speaking Muslims killed 56 people in the BTAD area last month, resulting in about 400,000 people being displaced.

On Sunday, four bodies were recovered, two in Kokrajhar and two in Chirang.

Indefinite curfew, which had been in force in Chirang district since Sunday, was Tuesday relaxed from 12 noon to 4 p.m.

A four member team of the National Human Rights Commission is in Kokrajhar to take stock of the relief and rehabilitations measures. The team will visit various relief camps in violence hit areas for the next two days. So far, 116,000 people have returned from relief camps and the administration has been able to close 95 relief camps.
