Mangaldai, Nov 13 (UNI) Senior Jamiat leader Maulana Mahmood Madani today visited the minority relief camps sheltering communal violence-hit victims in northern Assam's Darrang district.

He visited the Besimari and Burigaon camps in the district and took first-hand account of the victims and distributed some relief material among them.

Mr Madani, assessing the situation, assured of taking up the issue of rehabilitation of the victims with the Centre.

He said he will also appeal to the Centre to ensure complete security of the people and early return of the victims to their homes.

The Jamiat secretary also expressed concern at the continued use of schools in the area as relief camps as it was hampering the students education.

Darrang and neighbouring Udalguri districts had been severely hit by clashes between ethnic Bodo tribe and immigrant Muslims in the early part of October, with several people killed and many villages of both communities torched.

About 80,000 people are still sheltered at relief camps as simmering tension prevailed in the areas though strong security presence has ensured no flare-ups.
