Violence mars Assam Bandh: 1 killed, 20 injured

One person died, over 30 injured in the sporadic violence which has marred the 36 hour statewide Assam bandh call by the All Assam Adivashi Students on Monday.

According to information, a person died and six injured in Kokrajhar while the Adivashi protestors attacked him with three of his associates. The injured people have been rushed to the hospital. The supporters further set the vehicle on fire.

Such reports of mild violence have been reported also in Samoguri in Nagaon, Dhekiajuli, Golaghat, Sivasagar, Dibrugagh and Tinsukia districts of upper Assam where the bandh was total.

An elaborate security arrangement has averted many major violence across the state. The bandh had no impact in Guwahati.

The bandh call was given by the Adivashi students body in protest against the Saturday’s mob violence which they claimed over 20 peoples died.

Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister has announced a judicial probe into the incident which rocked the city on Saturday in Beltola area.
