The All Bodo Students Union (ABSU) has asked the Assam government to accord stringent punishment to the culprits involved in the recent rape and murder of a woman in Udalguri.

On April 10 Anjali Basumatary, mother of a five-year- old girl was raped and murdered in Udalguri.

The teenager worked as a maid at the house of Prakash Borthakur.

“Such a brutal incident the accused must be arrested and punished. The state government should ensure that the family of the victim gets justice,” said an ABSU member.
