Fresh incidents of violence were reported in lower Assam districts even as the Government on Tuesday recommended a CBI probe into the ethnic clashes, which have left 73 dead so far.

In the worst-affected Kokrajhar district, three persons were killed and two others injured when some persons opened fire on a group of people at Ranibuli village late night Monday while one more body was found on Tuesday in neighbouring Chirang district, IGP (Law and Order) L. R. Bishnoi said.

Indefinite curfew has been reimposed in Kokrajhar, while round-the-clock curfew continues in Chirang.

Army continued flag marches in the morning in Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri districts.
