today urged the Assam government to immediately intervene and protect

about 800 children affected by the recent violence in Baksa and Kokrajhar

districts of Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD).

The organisation in a statement also urged the state government

to take urgent steps to ensure that children who have been orphaned

were staying in a place of safety with their relatives and only when

there was no other recourse, should these children be sent to childrens' homes.

The children are currently taking shelter along with their families

in different relief-camps of the two districts following the two-day

attack since May 1 in which 46 people lost their lives.

Of the 169 children in the camp at Bangarpur village, 64 are in

the age group of 0-6 years and many of these children lost their

parents in the attack on unarmed villagers and need immediate attention.

The government should also ensure that the children affected by

the violence were able to continue their studies in an environment

of safety and care, and children living in the camps were provided

with psycho-social counselling along with safe drinking water and

nutritious food, the statement said.

The organisation deplored the killing of innocent children and other

civilians, and appealed all stakeholders to address the structural

causes of this violence so that no more innocents, particularly children

were maimed, orphaned or killed.
