Curfew was relaxed on Monday in violence-hit Baksa and Kokrajhar and neighbouring Chirang districts of Assam where 34 persons were killed in the mayhem unleashed by NDFB-Songbijit militants since Thursday last.
With no fresh incident reported so far, the district administrations relaxed the prohibitory order imposed since Friday night for eight hours from 10 am at Baksa, for six hours at Kokrajhar and for seven hours from 10 am at Chirang respectively.
Flag march by the Army continued to instill confidence among the people even as the security forces were patrolling the affected areas to prevent further outbreak of violence, the sources said. No fresh attacks were reported since Friday from Baksa and Kokrajhar districts falling under the Bodoland Territorial Areas districts (BTAD), which also includes Chirang and Udalguri districts, the sources said.
