Four persons, including two boys, were allegedly kidnapped by suspected NDFB (Songbijit) insurgents in Assam’s Baksa district, following which a massive search was launched and indefinite curfew imposed.
The four victims, part of a group of lemon traders, went to Labdanguri market in Salbari sub-division from adjacent Barpeta district last evening but did not return.
“It is suspected that they have been kidnapped by the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (Songbijit) militants,” Baksa Additional Deputy Commissioner Bhawani Prasad Sharma told PTI.
Following this, indefinite curfew was clamped in Salbari.
“Indefinite curfew has been imposed in Salbari sub-division under Gobardhana police station,” Sharma said.
