Normal train service remains disrupted in Assam on Thursday when Adivasi people blocked the rail tacks in protest against the NDFB-S massacre in Kokrajhar and Sonitpur where around 70 people lost their lives.
Led Adivasi National Convention Committee, Adivasi people in large number came out of their homes in the various places across the state in the morning and blocked the rail tracks to prevent the trains from moving for several hours.
Reports of rail blockade are pouring in from several parts of the state. In Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Jorhat, Sivasagar and Golaghat districts, several trains are not moving under impact of the indefinite blockade.
Same situation arises in Kokrajhar, Gossaigaon, Barpeta districts where blockade has forced the north east frontier railway to reschedule the trains.
Apart from it, the Assam Tea Tribes Students’ Association is giving a 12 hour Assam bandh call on Friday protest against the carnage of the Adivasi people by NDFB-S in three districts. The bandh would start from 6 in the morning to end at 6 in the evening.
