    GUWAHATI: The district administration of troubled Kokrajhar of Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD) of Assam imposed indefinite curfew on Thursday morning after suspected militants shot one person dead and stabbed another in two separate incidents in the district.

    The Army, which was called in Wednesday night to handle the situation in Kokrajhar, carried out flag march in all the sensitive areas of the district on Thursday morning.

    While the first incident took place during indefinite curfew in Kokrajhar, where suspected militants stabbed one Abul Kalam, the second incident took place at Telipara under Gosaigaon subdivision in the district where suspected militants shot dead one Nirisan Basumatary.

    "The district administration has imposed indefinite curfew in view of the continued violence Thursday in Kokrajhar," said IGP (BTAD) GP Singh, and added that Army had conducted flag march in all the sensitive areas of the district.

    Singh said the condition of the person, injured during the attack in the weekly market in Kokrajhar Thursday, is serious.

    The Kokrajhar and Chirang districts, which form Assam's BTAD along with Udalguri and Baksa, had witnessed one of the worst communal clashes earlier this year which led to killing of over 100 people and displacement of over four lakh others from their homes.
