Alleging the government of India and Assam of killing innocent Boro people in “fake encounters”, accusing them to be National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) cadres, the NDFB Monday threatened to kill 20 or more people for every Boro people/NDFB cadres killed by security forces.
In an email statement, B Jwngkhang, deputy chief of the Boroland Army warned saying “From today onwards, if any innocent Boro/NDFB cadres were killed by Indian forces in the name of fake encounter, then the Boroland Army (armed wing of the NDFB) will take action against any Indian”.
“One innocent Boro would be equal to 20 Indian or maybe more and we don’t care who they are, maybe Indian civilian or Indian forces. NDFB are ready to strike, this will be anytime and any moment,” the statement said.
Cautioning the government of India and Assam to be serious before killing any innocent Boro people the statement said “if it (killings) starts then we will start….the government of India and Assam will be blamed not the Boroland army”. “Fight with the Boroland Army (NDFB) not with innocent Boro civilians” the statement said.
IANS adds: Security forces in the past three months have killed at least 20 NDFB cadres, besides arresting more than 15 militants in separate raids even as the tribal separatist group has continued with a series of kidnappings for money.
The threat comes less than 48 hours after Assam mourned the victims of the deadly serial explosions Oct 30, 2008, in which about 100 people were killed and about 500 injured.
The NDFB was blamed for the nine near-simultaneous explosions with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probing the serial blasts chargesheeting 19 people directly involved in the terror attack. “We are taking the NDFB threat very seriously and hence a security alert was sounded across Assam,” a senior Assam police official said.
