SDRF search operation in Beki

The Baksa district administration is all set to deploy SDRF at the Beki river on Wednesday in search of 15 people who went missing on Friday.

Official sources told Assam Times that the operation will start in the morning at Khagrabari area in the Salmbari sub division.

These people including a 3 month old baby have gone traceless when a group of 40-50 miscreants unleashed a reign of terror on Friday night.

The armed miscreants arrived in the village and set on fire the huts while some of them started indiscriminate firing at the villagers who were running out of their homes to get rid of the danger.

The miscreants were believed to have shot dead some of them near the Beki river. Some others were learnt to have jumped into the river amid darkness.

On Saturday and Sunday at least 16 bodies were found on the river bank. But 15 villagers have been remaining traceless.
