Steps on to ensure BTAD security: CM

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Thursday announced a special force in the vulnerable areas of BTAD.

Addressing a press conference, Gogoi said that the force would be raised with the help of the local residents to ensure the safety and security of the people.

He said another special force would be raised to seized illegal firearms in the BTAD areas.

According to Gogoi, 12 people have been remaining traceless since the incidents of attack.

Gogoi, however, added that section of the local residents in Naranguri area who survived the attack jumped into the Beki river on Friday night.

Apart from these, Gogoi has written to the Centre asking for 50 more additional forces to be deployed in BTAD which would be possible only after the election.
