Combing operation continues

A full scale combing operation is going on in the trouble torn BTAD areas after 36 people lost their lives in a string of attacks on the religious people.But there is no report of any notable success.

Army, police and para military forces have cordoned off a huge area in worst-hit Salbari, Gossaigaon, Kokrajhar and Narayanpuri areas in search of the miscreants who have been mongering trouble for the last couple of days.

Indo-Bhutan border has been sealed to restrict the movement of the NDFB-S militants apart from the round-the-clock vigil along the Kokrajhar-Dhubri inter district border.  

A parallel operation is also in progress to seize the illegal arms in the entire BTAD areas. Security forces have been deployed in the remote and vulnerable areas in search of the miscreants. Moreover, checkings in the vehicles on the streets have been intensified to seize the illegal arms.
