Blood in Bodoland

On December 23, 2014, 81 people were killed by the alleged Songbijit faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland, or NDFB(S), targeting adivasi settlers brought here 150 years ago by the British for tea cultivation.
The brutal killings led to protests by the adivasis on December 24. These quickly turned violent across Kokrajhar, Sonitpur and Udalgudi districts. Several Bodo villages across the affected districts were torched. As a reaction, wherever adivasis had fled their villages fearing for their lives, the Bodos in turn torched those villages. This rioting and arson led to the displacement of about three lakh people across the three districts of Assam. They’re now in limbo, in makeshift relief camps in schools and farms.
