Adivasi huts burnt down in Sonitpur

Sporadic violence refuses to die down in Sonitpur district even after the authorities have clamped curfew in some areas. Suspected NDFB-S militants unleashed yet another orgy of violence in the trouble torn district when they burnt houses of Adivasi people on Friday.

The incident took place in Balidanga where the local residents told Assam Times that militants sneaked into the hamlet in the wee hours and burnt several hunts belonging to the Adivasi people.

“We cried for help when the militants burnt our huts. We were forced to flee from our houses in the wee hours. But we have not seen any policeman around us,” alleged a local resident before Assam Times.  These have forced thousands of villagers to rush to the relief camps set up by the district administration.
