Fresh incidents of violence in Assam have claimed three more lives, two in Kokrajhar and one in Baska, both Bodoland districts. The death toll in incidents since Saturday has gone up to seven.

While two persons were killed in three separate incidents, one each in Kokrajhar and Baska district on Tuesday night, a school teacher was hacked to death inside a block elementary education office, also in Kokrajhar district, on Wednesday. The victim has been identified as Asaruddin Sheikh.

A person identified as Akramul Ahmed was injured in the attack.
