By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, July 29 � Somesh Goyal, Inspector General, Sashastra Seema Bal, paid a two-day visit to the BTAD areas in the wake of the ethnic clashes and to see the deployment of SSB on the Indo-Bhutan border and in the riot-affected areas.

SSB troops alongwith the local police were the first responders when clashes broke out and arson was reported. Hundreds of men, women and children were provided shelter in and near SSB campuses. Adequate medical aid through SSB doctors and para-medic staff was also extended to the victims. One lady who was in labour was evacuated for delivery, said Goyal in a press release.

After initial deployment in the riot-affected areas, four companies of SSB, three drawn from the adjoining Siliguri Frontier and one from 37 Bn Mangaldoi were given the task of safeguarding the railway stations and tracks between Kokrajhar and Srirampur. Ever since the deployment of SSB along the railway track from 24.7.2012, normal train movement has been ensured, said the Inspector General.
