(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) People in two assam villages have refused to bury those killed in violence unleashed by suspected national democratic front of bodoland (ndfb) militants since thursday until the chief minister assures them justice.

people in narayanguri and khagrabari villages close to the manas national park in baksa district of northern assam said they would not bury their dead until chief minister tarun gogoi personally visits the area and assures them of justice and adequate compensation.

the two villages in baksa district bore the maximum brunt of the violence. “we are going to wait till the chief minister personally comes and assures us to protect our lives. we also demand rs2 million each in compensation to the families of those killed and rs1 million each to those who received serious injuries during the violence” said rahmat ali a resident of khagrabari village in baksa.

sources in the chief ministers’ office here said gogoi is not scheduled to visit the bodoland territorial areas districts (btad).

however senior cabinet colleague and state agricultural minister nilamoni sen deka has been camping in btad to monitor the situation. assam home commissioner g.d. tripathy said no fresh incidents of violence have been reported since saturday evening and the situation is now under control.

a curfew has been imposed in kokrajhar baksa and chirang districts of the btad since friday evening and will continue with a few hours’ relaxation.

there are also reports of large-scale migration of people to safer areas. many people are fleeing to adjoining areas fearing more violence by the militants.

“we have suffered enough during the 2012 violence. we have lost houses family cattle and all that we used to have during the violence two years back. the violence has started again we have to leave again” said aminul haque a resident of teteliguriw village located 30km from kokrajhar town.
