Transit remand for Burling Bhutur

The Assam Police on Saturday got Burling Bhutur on transit remand a day after the dreaded NDFB-S rebel was arrested in Bangalore.

The wanted rebel is allegedly involved in the killing of six Adivasi people at Lungsung on December 23 apart from killing of 6 Hindi-speaking people in Sarfang guri on January 16.

A team of police from Guwahati is on the way back from Bangaluru on Saturday along with the NDFB-S leader whom police caught acting on tipoff from their Assam counterpart.

Notably, he was also wanted in the gory Serfang guri carnage where he and his group pulled down around 12 passengers from a bus and shot 6 of them dead at Athiabari.
