Tezpur: The body of a person suspected to be of a member of a group of 6 Nepali pilgrims kidnapped by the banned NDFB was recovered Saturday in north Assam's Sonitpur district.

Police sources said a surrendered NDFB militant led the police to Santipur in Dhekiajuli from where the body was dug out.

The militant identified the body as that of one of the pilgrims who had come from Nepal on pilgrimage to the Kamakhya temple in Guwahati during the Durga Puja festival in October, the sources said.

The 6 had come from Nepal via Siliguri to Tezpur on September 28 when they went missing and were suspected to have been kidnapped by the NDFB.

The family members of the 6 persons in Nepal would be informed about the body recovered.
