Salbari (Assam): Demanding that Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi visit their area, people of Salbari in Assam's violence-hit Baksa district today refused to bury their kin killed in attacks by NDFB-S militants.  


Angry protestors in Nankekhadrabari area today said they will not perform the last rites of the bodies of the 18 people, including children and women, till Gogoi comes and personally assures to provide security to their lives and property.

“Does our life have no value? We are only demanding that we are protected and we are not attacked and killed in future” they told reporters.

“The district administration instead of providing violence-hit people security and protection, is now threatening to arrest us if we do not perform janaja (last rites) of our dead”, they alleged.
