The incident resulted in many people getting severely injured in the attack including women and children- five of them are in critical situation and are undergoing treatment at the Barpeta Medical College Hospital.

As per reports, the victims said, “the attackers were encroachers who have settled in the area during the last two years. During the Eid celebration, they organised gambling in the area. When a few villagers opposed them, around 2000 people came with sharp weapons and beat up everyone in the area.”

Shrinkhal Chaliha who is the Veer Lachit Sena Leader said, “we stand by the Indigenous Muslim Community in Barpeta. Any attack on our indigneous brothers and sisters, both Hindus and Muslims will not be tolerated at any cost”.
