Dacoits arrested
 HOWRAGHAT, Jan 17 Apart from militants, terror activities of dacoits have become a cause of worry in the hill district of Karbi Anglong. Presently, the terror let loose by the dacoits is snatching the peace of people in Howraghat as well as in other areas of the district.

It may be mentioned here that last Tuesday night, a gang of seven-to-eight dacoits entered On Teron village. The villagers soon alerted the Howraghat police and this together with the hue and cry raised by the villagers compelled the gang to flee the spot. It is interesting that though they escaped from the hands of public and police, two of the dacoits were later detained by Howraghat police in the wee hour of Wednesday. The arrested two dacoits, reportedly involved in many robberies other criminal activities, were identified as Abdul Motin (38) of Lanka and Ajahar Uddin (50) of Samarali under Murajhar police station of Nagaon district.
