Strike fear before R-Day

Militant outfits are likely to strike again to make is presence felt in the run up to the Republic Day celebration.

This has forced Dispur to approach the Centre seeking more additional forces to contain the law and order situation that might turn volatile. This was what Chief ministerTarunGogoi told reporters in New Delhi on Saturday.

He further condemned the NDFB’s Sangbijit faction for the offensive against the innocent people in Kokrajhar on Friday night where five bus passengers were mowed down to avenge the killing of the colleague.

Gogoi took stock of the situation in the district by holding a telephonic talk with the new DGP KhagenSarma who took over the charge on Friday.  Top ranked police officials rushed to the spot and a combing operation is in progress to nab the culprits.
