BTAD under control: Gogoi

Chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Thursday claimed to have brought the situation under control in BTAD areas where at least 40 people were killed by unidentified miscreants.

Addressing a press conference in Dispur, Gogoi said,” the situation is by and large under control. But feeling of insecurity still grips the people.”

He said that the government has confirmed report of 39 deaths and that 22 people have been arrested so far in this connection.

“We would contact the SOS village to adopt the children who lost their parents in the bloodletting,” said Gogoi who was shocked to have seen the children of the victims’ family members in Narayannguri and Balapara.
