Following the Assam massacre, the rebellion group in the state have fled to Bhutan for safety, Indian media claim.

Dozens of people were killed in Assam in recent week in several incidents what Indian media say was triggered by Assam-based Bodo rebellion group.

The latest unrest on Wednesday night comes towards the end of a marathon national election that has heightened ethnic and religious divisions in some parts of India.

Media quoted local security officials on Thursday saying the suspected Bodo militants had since fled to Bhutan. Bhutan government has been asked to keep a watch on border movement.
