BTAD calm but tense

The overall situation in BTAD areas remained normal. There is no report of any untoward incident during the last 12 hours.

Over 500 people in Narayanguri have come for shelter at a local school to be heavily guarded by the security forces.

But people from five villages in Baska district are believed to have fled to Dhubri seeking safety and security.

Army, police and para military forces are on round the clock patrolling in the streets in Kokrajhar, Chirang and Baksa to thwart any move of the miscreants who have killed at least 33 people in a string of attacks on minority people.

Top ranked civil and police officials along with a ministers have been closely monitoring the situation in the BTAD areas.
