Assam violence
Guwahati, Aug 28: One person was killed and five others injured in three separate incidents of violence in Assam's strife-torn Kokrajhar district late last night, police said. The first incident took place in Phumti Village under Salakati police outpost, but no casualty was reported from there.

Miscreants opened fire and set some houses on fire before managing to escape after police reached the incident sites and fired at the miscreants, said LR Bishnoi, IGP, Assam (Law and Order). Ever since violence erupted in the Bodoland Territorial Administered Districts and Dhubri since Jul 19, over 80 people have been killed, according to official figures.
