In emails to media outlets in Guwahati, the three outfits said the Bhutan army launched its December 15 operation "without any clear ultimatum".

"The joint forces of Indian and Royal Bhutan Army are brutally killing old people, women and children," the joint statement alleged.

The forces, it said, did not give safe passage to octogenarian Buragohain, women and children in violation of Geneva Convention as well as all civil norms of modern war.
