GUWAHATI: National Democratic Front of Boroland (Songbijit faction) militants shot dead at least 48 adivasis, including women and children, at five different places in Assam on Tuesday. Late at night, the Army was called in to maintain law and order in the troubled areas.

Police said the killings started around 5pm at Maitalubasti in Sonitpur district in northern Assam, bordering Arunachal Pradesh and Bhutan. Twenty-three bodies were found in the area that is located inside the Pabhoi reserve forest. Minutes after the attacks at Maitalubasti, the militants shot dead three persons at Pakhriguri village in Kokrajhar district in western Assam, bordering West Bengal, police added. The militants also targeted Ultapani village in Kokrajhar district from where six bodies were found.

Two more villages were attacked in Sonitpur district. Ten people were found dead at Phulbari and six at Batasipur. All the five places fall under the jurisdiction of the Bodoland Territorial Autonomous Districts (BTAD). Most of the adivasis living in the region are from Chhotanagpur Plateau and central India.

Additional DGP (special branch, Assam Police) Pallab Bhattacharya said, "We are still trying to ascertain the number of casualties. The places where the killings took place are remote and close to the Bhutan border," he added.

On Monday, the NDFB (Songbijit faction) had warned the government of retaliatory attacks if the security forces did not stop operations against its men. Bhattacharya said, "We had information that the outfit would carry out retaliatory attacks but it was difficult to pinpoint the locations."

"The NDFB (Songbijit faction) might have targeted the adivasis suspecting them of passing on information about its cadre to police," a source said. "We had information that the outfit Songbijit faction of NDFB) would carry out retaliatory attacks but it was difficult to pinpoint the locations," additional DGP (special branch, Assam Police) Pallab Bhattacharya said

The five attacks came less than three hours after chief minister Tarun Gogoi said his government would go ahead with counter-insurgency operations despite threats from the NDFB (Songbijit faction).

On Sunday, the outfit had lost two of its men during a joint operation by police and Army personnel inside the Chirang reserve forest near the Bhutan border. The security personnel had also seized a huge cache of arms and ammunition from the militants. Tuesday's attacks came amid preparations for Christmas. A majority of Bodo militants as well as adivasis are Christians.


In June, NDFB militants had killed more than 40 Bengali-speaking people in Baksa district. In 2012, more than 100 people died and more than 4.5 lakh displaced from their homes following clashes between Bodos and Bengali-speaking Muslims.

The state home department has recently declared the BTAD, comprising Kokrajhar, Baksa, Chirang and Udalguri districts, as an ethnically sensitive area. The region has seen over 588 kidnappings in three years, it has said. As many as 437 people have received extortion notes, mainly from the NDFB (Songbijit).
