On Friday, fourteen (14) persons, including two women, were killed in Kokrajhar district of Assam, India, in broad daylight when militants dressed in Army fatigues opened fire and hurled bombs at a busy weekly market. Though the incident occurred 15 km from Kokrajhar town, an Army patrol van which was nearby when the firing started engaged the terrorists, killing one of them.

The Army said swift action by the troops “prevented indiscriminate killings of civilians in the crowded market place.”

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Saturday said militant group NDFB(S) had direct involvement in the attack in Kokrajhar district that claimed fourteen lives.

Direct involvement of NDFB(S) in the Kokrajhar violence has been found following unearthing of vital information,” an official release quoting Sonowal said.
