 An eerie silence prevails in Bujuliban area of Tinsukia a day after suspected ULFA militants gunned down a local businessman and his daughter for refusing to pay ransom.

Security forces are fanning in the entire area to nab the gunmen who sprayed several rounds of bullets on the family members of Nandalal Shah. Shah died on the spot. His daughter succumbed to his injuries on the way to the hospital. His wife and daughters have been battling for life at Assam Medical College Hospital.
