Guwahati, Nov 11 (IBNS): Ten days after the Tinsukia killing incident, Assam police are still in fight to get clues of killers identity. 

Five Bengali-speaking people were killed by unidentified gunmen at Khoirabari area near Dhola-Sadiya bridge in upper Assam’s Tinsukia district on Nov 1 evening.

But, Assam police have not been able to find out the killers identity so far.

Earlier, Assam police claimed that militants of the banned outfit ULFA (I) are behind the killing incident, but the outfit denied their involvement into the incident.

Following the incident, Assam police and other security agencies launched combing operation in Tinsukia district and the bordering areas with Arunachal Pradesh to nab the killers, but failed to make any arrest.

Police arrested a ULFA (I) linkman for their alleged involvement in the incident but failed to arrest the killers.

A top official of Assam police said the attackers might be fled to Arunachal Pradesh after the incident and Assam police in touch with its Arunachal Pradesh counterpart to launch combing operation.

On the other hand, former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi slammed the BJP-led Assam government and said that, the government is totally failed to protect common people in the state.

The former Assam CM also questioned why the killers not held yet.

“Why the government not able to find out culprits, why haven’t the killers been caught? Delay in apprehending the killers raised some other questions as were some vested interest groups involved in the incident,” Gogoi said.
