Sonitpur incident free in 24 hr

Normalcy is gradually back to Sonitpur district after the NDFB-S carnage. District administration told Assam Times that there is no report of any fresh incident of NDFB-S attacks during the last 24 hours. More and more army and para military forces are arriving in the district to intensify the counter offensive apart from guarding the panic stricken people who either have been rendered homeless or fled their homes to escape the attack. Army, Assam Rifles, CRPF and police have been continuing the crackdown against the NDF-S rebels. The security forces have been concentrating on the dense jungles along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border where the rebels are believed to have been hiding. Thousands of people who have been rendered homeless are taking shelter in the make shift camps set up by the district authorities. Food, medicines and clothes are made available for the refugees. Chief minister Tarun Gogoi, who reviewed the law and order situation in Dispur on Friday instructed the senior officials to step up relief measures in the trouble torn districts.
