New Delhi: With sudden spurt in violence in the state, the Centre has asked the Assam government to take stern action against NDFB militants who have massacred 24 people, most of them Hindi-speaking, since Monday.

In a communiqué, the Home Ministry asked the state government to launch an all-out offensive against the NDFB militants who are believed to have been hiding in the dense forests along Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border.

The Ministry also assured the state government of all help in arresting those involved in the killings.

Yesterday, Home Minister P Chidambaram had spoken to Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and inquired about the violence perpetrated by NDFB militants and asked him to take all possible steps to apprehend the culprits.
