Three more persons were gunned down by NDFB rebels on Tuesday to take the overnight toll in serial violence in seven districts of Assam to 21 as the authorities sounded a red alert across the state.
The rebels belonging to the anti-talk faction of the banned organisation shot dead two Hindi-speaking persons of a minority community at Ultapani in Kokrajhar district on the Indo-Bhutan border early this morning, police said.
Then in neighbouring Chirang district, the NDFB ultras gunned down a cycle mechanic at his residence at Domgaon village in the Bengtol police station area, they said.
In night-long violence on Tuesday, the rebels had killed 18 people, including eight Hindi-speaking and eight bus passengers, and injuring over 20.
Most of the attacks took place in Sonitpur district, bordering Arunachal Pradesh, where 14 people had been gunned down.
