Meanwhile, tension prevails in and around Kokrajhar following the incident and security measures have been tightened in the entire Kokrajhar district.

He asked Director General of Police (DGP) Mukesh Sahay to rush to Kokrajhar to review the situation and initiate an inquiry to nab the culprits within 24 hours.

A massive hunt has been launched to nab the killers and further investigations were on, police added.

Condemning the killing, Sonowal called upon the people to maintain peace and harmony and stay away from the rumour mongers. "The state government should order a high-level probe into his murder", Badruddin Ajmal, chief of All India United Democratic Front, said. The Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti president Akhil Gogoi termed it a political killing and said there were "deep conspiracies behind this to destabilise the region and incite communal clash".
