The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the savage killing of 31 people by Bodo extremist elements in Kokrajhar and adjoining districts of the Bodoland Territorial Council.  This shocking attack targeting Bengali Muslims in various villages has led to the death of a large number of women and children.
There has been systematic efforts earlier too for ethnic cleansing in the area.  The state government and the Centre should take immediate steps to ensure the protection and security of the minorities in the area.  The security forces should take firm action to curb the extremist elements.
