30 killed as Muslims, tribals clash in India
Posted 1 hour 19 minutes ago
Indian police battled with rampaging mobs on Sunday (local time), killing four people, in a bid to contain clashes between Muslims and tribal groups in the north-east that have claimed 30 lives, officials said.
Despite a curfew and shoot-on-sight orders, police struggled to quash the violence that erupted on Friday after Muslims allegedly attacked guards from the Bodo tribal group in an area of Assam state bordering Bhutan.
At least 30 people have been killed since then, including 14 in police firing, and more than 100 injured, the state's home ministry said Sunday, as villagers attacked each other with machetes, spears and homemade guns.
"We have asked security forces to take all possible steps to stop the violence and help restore calm in the area," Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi said as the violence spread.
On Sunday, police shot dead four armed rioters trying to torch a village in the Udalguri region, about 120 kilometres north of Assam's main city Guwahati.
Police and paramilitary troops opened fire in at least three separate locations in an attempt to stave off arson attacks, officials said.
More than 400 homes have been burnt and at least 30,000 people have fled their villages in an area partially controlled by the Bodos under a deal that saw the majority of the tribal people abandon claims for a separate homeland.
Authorities suspect an extremist Bodo group of being behind the attacks on Muslims, but other groups in the insurgency-hit state also appear to have joined the fighting.
Officials have been surprised by the clashes between the Muslims and the Bodos, who have coexisted peacefully for decades until fighting broke out between them in August, leaving 10 people dead.
More than 10,000 people have lost their lives to insurgency in Assam during the past two decades.

The Muslims are Bangladeshi illegal immigrants.
They have displaced the native tribal population by more than 75% in many places.

UDALGURI (Assam): At least seven persons were killed when police fired on a group of Bangladeshi migrants who tried to defy shoot-at-sight orders in trouble-torn districts of Darrang and Udalguri even as violent clashes between the immigrant workers and tribal Bodos claimed seven more lives.
The clashes that broke out on Friday over stealing of cattle have already claimed 16 lives. With Sunday's incidents the toll went up to 30.
Police fired on a group of illegal migrants at Fakirapara as they tried to enter Darrang from neighbouring Nagaon and Morigaon districts refusing to retreat despite shoot-at-sight orders being in force.
Five migrants were killed on the spot and several others injured, official sources said.
In another incident of police firing, two persons were killed at Tiyajhar in Udalguri district during the day.
Two bodies bearing severe injury marks were also recovered from Baksa district this afternoon, while five migrants were hacked to death and another critically injured by unidentified miscreants at Dimakuchi weekly market in Udalguri district, where they had gone to trade in dry fish.
Army staged flag marches in all the affected areas of Udalguri and Darrang districts and indefinite curfew continued in both the districts. The army has deployed 10 companies in the two trouble-torn districts, the sources said.
Thousand of Bodos have fled their homes in panic and have taken shelter in temporary relief camps set up by the administration in five places, they said.
Udalguri Deputy Commissioner George Basumatary has been transferred and SP Anup Kumar Singh suspended for dereliction of duty and have been replaced by Kamal Mahanta and A K Tiwari respectively.
