During the telephonic conversation, the Home Minister once again assured the Assam government of all help needed to provide relief to the victims of violence perpetrated by Bodo rebel group NDFB.

Singh has also instructed Union Home Secretary Anil Goswami to look into the reports of lack of facilities at the relief camps in Assam, official sources said.

More than 80 people were killed following violence perpetrated by the NDFB and retaliatory attacks on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Home Minister had visited the violence-affected areas of Assam on Wednesday and Thursday.

Earlier, Rajnath Singh announced that the National Investigation Agency would probe the NDFB(S) attacks and assured the Assam government of Army's assistance, if necessary, in its crackdown on militant organisations.

"The Centre has adopted a zero-tolerance policy against all acts of terror and the similar policy will be adopted in this case too," he had said.

Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag on Saturday reviewed the deployment of Army in those areas of Assam and examined the blueprint for deployment of additional forces in the region.
