Assam: Militants loot house in Cachar village

SILCHAR: Militants have created havoc at  Bhubandahar village under Lakhipur sub-division in Cachar district. A group of militants on Saturday night raided a house and looted valuables from here.
Sources said a group of 16 armed tribal militants at 11pm on Saturday came to the house of Jumma Khan, an affluent trader, with a motive to abduct him. However, as Khan was not in the house at that time, they started to beat up other members of the family, including Khan’s wife and mother. The militants looted cash, gold ornaments and other valuables from the house at gun-point. They left the place in the darkness of the night.

The injured family members were admitted to the local government hospital with the help of police and villagers.
After hearing about the incident, police from Lakhipur rushed to the place and launched an operation along Assam’s border with Manipur and Mizoram. However, the whereabouts of the militants remains unknown.
On Sunday morning, additional SP (Cachar) Jagadish Das visited the village to take note of the situation and to carry out inquiries.
