Bodo separatists gunned down a woman and injured three people in Assam today, continuing their attacks on Hindi speakers and minorities for the third straight day and taking the death toll in the serial strikes to 24, police say. A police spokesperson said heavily armed militants of the outlawed National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) early Wednesday attacked Jamuguri village in Kokrajhar district and opened indiscriminate firing.
“A woman named Kalwa Chauhan died on the spot while three more were injured as NDFB militants sprayed bullets from automatic weapons,” a senior police official said. The masked militants, numbering six, came in motorcycles and sped away soon after the attack. There have been at least 11 separate attacks since Monday evening with NDFB militants launching coordinated strikes, targeting mostly Hindi speakers and people belonging to the minority community.
“There is a definite pattern to the killings with most casualties either Hindi- speaking people or minorities,” the police official said. At least 15 people have been injured, five of them critically, in the attacks and they are now admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Gauhati Medical College Hospital.
