Kokrajhar: Although all factions of the NDFB have come to the mainstream through the Bodoland Territorial Region Accord signed on January 27 this year, some miscreants tried to create chaos by planning to kidnap a person from Tipkai Bazar in Assam's Kokrajhar district. The local police administration, however, swung into action and apprehended two persons on Saturday.

According to Kokrajhar SP Rakesh Roushan, based on a source input regarding the attempt by unknown miscreants to kidnap someone from Tipkai area under Bogribari police station, a trap was laid by deputy SP (HQ), OC Bogribari, in-charge Tipkai and staff in and around Tipkai market area. Police personnel in plainclothes were placed in and around the market area on Saturday.
