Byline: ANI

Guwahati, Dec 10 (ANI): Various Bodo people's organisations have hit the streets in Assam demanding firm action against fratricidal killings among various Bodo armed groups which have created an atmosphere of insecurity and uncertainty in districts that fall under the Bodoland Territorial Council.

Nirmal Basumatry, a class IX student of Latamari village in the Bodo tribe belt is the latest victim.

Armed miscreants gunned down Nimal, the brother-in-law of a former Bodo Liberation Tigers cadre Manoj Narzary.

With Nirmal's killing, the death toll in the on going fratricidal clashes in Bodoland Territorial Council areas has gone up to ten since November 8.

Various Bodo civil society groups have been trying their best to stop the killings.

President of the Bodoland People's Progressive Front (BPPF) Pabiramm Narazry opined: "We have staged a protest against and asked the government for a high commission inquiry for the killing of people and culprits should be booked, people should have peace and prosperity."

Another BPPF leader Urkhaow Brahma said: "I think there is big deep-rooted conspiracy against the Bodo society and unless the Bodo Society themselves have to realize the fact that somebody is hatching a plot against the Bodo society, unless they realize the fact, the problem will not solve."

Various Bodo People's organizations are now demanding firm government action to stop fratricidal killings among Bodo armed groups.

Recently, the BPPF stated a protest in Guwahati, demanding security for its workers.

It alleged that there is an increase terror activity by a new militant outfit called the Bodoland Royal Tiger Force that is patronized by the ruling Bodoland People Front.

Election to the Bololand Territorial Council is scheduled to be held in 2010 and Bodo armed groups are making a desperate bid to have rulers of their choice elected to the Council. (ANI)
