Face of Violence: 8 workers killed in NC hills

Barely 24 hours after the fierce gun battle of Army with DHD(J) militant camp at Heralu in North Cachar hills district, altogether seven people have been killed on Sunday while they were working with the railway broad gauge construction project at Phaiding in the same hills district. Details are awaited.

Notably, 12 DHD(J) cadres were killed during a joint operation at their camp on Saturday. Hours after the incident, the DHD(J) cadres who announced unilateral ceasefire with the government, threatened to stymie the central and state government projects in both the hills districts. The militant outfit has alleged that their cadres were killed despite the unilateral ceasefire was in force and threatened to suspend it for a week.
