The massacre in the state of Assam was reportedly carried out by Bodo militants – a predominantly Christian armed separatist group which aims to create a separate homeland for the Bodo people.

A group of at least three assailants opened fire at a market in Balajan Tiniali, around two miles from the town of Kokrajhar, possibly using grenades to kill shoppers among the stalls of fruit and vegetables.

A police official said: “There were definitely three to four attackers. One of them has been neutralised.”

Police shot one attacker dead in a gun battle that lasted 20 minutes and grenades, an AK-47 and other weapons were recovered from the area.
