Another Assam Attack: 2 people Were killed At Tinsukia In A Open Fire By MIllitants

injured in attack

On Friday, terrorists opened fire in a village, Tinsukia district, Assam killing 2 people and seven others injured.

Assam police chief, Mukesh Sahay said that they are suspecting the anti-talk faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) behind this attack.

Four to five gunmen entered Philobari village and opened random fire on a group of people who had got together for a ‘kirtan’ recital in the compound of one Mahendra Shah, a small-scale dealer in Bamunbari village.

Kishori Tel and Rajesh Shah died on the spot. The injured were shifted to Assam Medical College Hospital in nearby Dibrugarh district.

Philobari has a substantial Hindi-speaking population, immigrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, mostly working as daily wage laborers.

While Tinsukia has a history of ULFA aiming Hindi-speaking settlers there, police suspect that is the case in Friday’s attack too.

Police and paramilitary forces have been deployed and security actions tightened in the district.

Only a day before in Philobari, suspected ULFA-I terrorists exploded an improvised explosive device (IED) in a sewer near Badalbheta Tea Estate, but no one was injured.

On August 5, the anti-talk faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) attacked the weekly Balajan market near Kokrajhar town, Assam, killing over 14 people of different communities.
