NARAYANGURI (Assam), May 10 (PTI): Two more bodies of minors were
recovered in the Baksa district today, taking the toll in the mayhem
allegedly unleashed by the NDFB(S) in BTAD areas to 43, a senior
government official said.
"Today, bodies of two minor boys were recovered from the Beki river.
While one was 13 months old, another was seven years," Baksa Additional
Deputy Commissioner Bhawani Prasad Sharma told PTI here.
Till date bodies of 36 people were recovered from the violence-hit
Narayanguri, Khagrabari and Narsingbari villages of Baksa district
and seven from Kokrajhar.
Meanwhile, a National Commission for Minorities team today visited
the affected areas of Baksa district.
The team comprised of the Chairman and some members first interacted
with the inmates of the relief camp and then went to the spot of
the incident in Naryanguri and Khagrabari on the other side of the
Beki river, Sharma said.
Victims as well as the villagers on the east of Beki river during
the interaction with the team alleged that Bodoland People's Front
(BPF)-supported miscreants had attacked them as they did not vote
for their candidate in the Lok Sabha elections.
