River Beki in Assam: Source of tension in Baksa district

River Beki in Baksa district of Assam was in news due to recovery of four kidnapped bodies on 13 July 2014. The bodies recovered were those of lemon traders from Baksa district who were kidnapped by suspected National Democratic Front of Bodoland – Songbijit (NDFB – S) militants.

The recovery of bodies led to mob protesting and imposition of indefinite curfew in Salabari sub-division and Anand Bazar area of the Baksa district. As a result, Deputy Commissioner of Baksa district Vinod Seshan has called in the Army and kept it on stand-by.

Earlier in May 2014, 50 people were killed in Baksa and Kokrajhar in Bodoland Territorial Area Districts by suspected Bodoland Peoples Front-supported militants.
