Guwahati: Manas National Park, a popular tourist spot inhabited by many tribals, has been closed for three days in the wake of killing by NDFB(S) terrorists on Tuesday of at least 34 people in serial attacks in two districts of Assam.
"We have shut Manas National Park for three days. There are lots of Adivasi and tribal people staying near the Park," Baksa district Deputy Commissioner Vinod Seshan told PTI here.
Manas National Park, known for its rich natural beauty, primarily falls in Baksa district.
"Also, many tea gardens are located in the nearby area where thousands of people belonging to tea tribe resides," Seshan said.
Most of the 34 people killed in today's serial attacks are tribals.
After most of the attacks on innocent people by militant organisations in the district, terrorists escape towards Bhutan side through the dense jungle of Manas.
