New Delhi: Bodo militants released a video of execution of a girl in Assam's Chirang didtrict, as they killed her for bring an informer. The video was released on Thursday and shows the girl lying in a pool of blood on the ground.

The militants threatened more killings and have released the video 'to warn others'.

The video was dubbed by the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB).

The video was released to avenge the killing of 5 National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) rebels by security forces.

The five militants belonging to the Songbijit faction of the NDFB were killed in an encounter with security forces in lower Assam's Chirang district early on Wednesday morning.

NDFB claims to be a representative of the Bodo people, who form around 10% of Assam's population.  It is designated as a terrorist organization by the Government of India.
