The calm prevailing in the three violence-hit districts of lower Assam for the past 10 days proved deceptive, with the police finding four dead bodies in Kokrajhar and Chirang on Sunday.

The calm prevailing in the three violence-hit districts of lower Assam for the past 10 days proved deceptive, with the police finding four dead bodies in Kokrajhar and Chirang on Sunday.

Indefinite curfew was imposed in Chirang district after tension mounted when a mob was seen heading to attack a village.

With the recovery of the bodies on Sunday, the death toll in the Bodo-Muslim ethnic violence that began on July 20 rose to 60.
