Two businessmen shot dead by ULFA

January 30, 2007 01:50 IST

Two businessmen from Bihar were shot dead by United Liberation Front of Assam insurgents at a remote village in Assam's Tinsukia district on Monday evening, in a chilling reminder of the massacre by the banned outfit of 70 people, mostly Hindi-speaking migrants, earlier this month.

The ULFA cadres went to Chapakhowathe village under Panchsmile outpost of Sadiya outpost at 1800 hours and shot dead 65-year-old Sambhu Prasad and 45-year-old Sriprasad Bairagi, sources said.

Eyewitnesses said the militants fired six to eight rounds killing the two on the spot.

Seventy people, mostly Bihari migrants, were killed by ULFA between January five and eight in different districts.
