Crackdown against NDFB-S

 Chief minister Tarun Gogoi has directed the police to launch a massive manhunt to arrest the killers of the class IX student.

The teenager was shot dead by NDFB or National Democratic Front of Bodoland ultras in the presence of her parents at Dwimugri village under Runikhata police station in Chirang district as the militants suspected her of being a police informer.

The police admitted that the body was retrieved at least 24 hours after she was killed and blamed remoteness of the village and non-cooperation by villagers for the delay.

Notably, she was killed on August 20 while her body was retrieved in the evening the next day.
