Baksa: Body recovered in Barpeta

Security forces recovered the body of Abu Bakar Siddique in Barpeta on Saturday evening 24 hours after the lemon trader was kidnapped by gunmen along with three others in Baksa district.

Police have already picked up three persons in this connection. Simmering tension and anger have forced the authorities to step up securities in the entire area.

Curfew is still on the Anandabazar areas under Gobardhana police station to deal with possible outbreak of violence.

Security forces are conducting a massive search to rescue Saddam Ali, Ataur Rahman and Rahul Amin who were kidnapped at gunpoint at Labdanguri market in Salbari sub-division. /
