Guwahati/ New Delhi: A two-member team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) led by superintendent of police Bibekananda Das visited the Kherabari area in Assam's Tinsukia district on Saturday night and collected evidence from the site where five people from the Bengali community were killed by unidentified gunmen on Thursday.
Meanwhile the Assam Police arrested a suspected ULFA-I operative identified as Diklai Gogoi for his alleged involvement in the Tinsukia killing incident.
The Trinamool Congress, which has been vocal about the incident, kept the pot boiling with a delegation from Bengal reaching the Dibrugarh airport on Sunday morning to visit Tinsukia and interact with the affected families.
