Trader, daughter shot dead in Tinsukia

A businessman and his daughter died and two others sustained injury when suspected ULFA men sprang upon a family in Tinsukia district on Tuesday.

The incident took place at around 7.30 in the evening in Bojulibon area near Pengeri.

Local residents told Assam Times that three gunmen came to the residence of businessman Nandalal Shah.    

When Shah and his family members came out of their house, the gunmen started indiscriminate firing upon the family and left the spot.

Nandalal died on the spot while his daughter succumbed to her injuries on the way to the hospital. His wife and son have been battling for life at the Assam Medical College Hospital.

Security forces are fanning in the area to nab the culprit. But nobody has been arrested.

The family members were believed to have received extortion notice from ULFA but did not meet the demand.
