Military to find tribal militants responsible for attack in Assam – Unique Times

India deployed military helicopters to hunt down tribal militants in Assam on Thursday after rebels killed 75 people this week, the deadliest in the remote area in years. Assam has a history of sectarian bloodshed and armed groups fighting for secession from India.

On Tuesday, suspected militants of a faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland attacked four villages in the space of an hour, pulling people out of their homes and shooting them dead.

 More than half of the victims were women and children of tea plantation workers from outside the state, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said as more bodies were discovered in the remote area.
