An indefinite curfew was clamped in Borgang, a township in Sonitpur district in northern Assam, on Sunday afternoon following fresh incidents of violence after the police recovered decomposed bodies of four persons who were killed by miscreants on the Arunachal Pradesh boundary about four weeks ago. With these, the number of persons killed in the January 29 incident has risen to 15.
While the bodies were found after the police carried out a search inside the Behali reserved forest on the Assam-Arunachal boundary Saturday, local residents under Borgang and Jinjia police outposts Sunday blocked NH-15 and attacked several vehicles after the police handed over the bodies to their families.
“The police had to resort to a lathicharge to disperse the mob after they attacked and damaged at least two vehicles including one belonging to the police. We later imposed an indefinite curfew to bring the situation under control,” Sonitpur deputy commissioner Lalit Gogoi said over the telephone from Tezpur.
