The body was found submerged in water near the temple by local residents early in the morning. The unexpected sight caused an immediate sensation in the area, drawing a crowd of concerned locals. The authorities were promptly notified, and the body was recovered and identified.

Labandu had been missing since around 2 PM on Monday, according to his village residents. His family had launched a search effort when he did not return home, but their efforts were unsuccessful. The discovery of his body the next day near the temple has left many puzzled, as it is unclear how he ended up in that location.

The mysterious circumstances of Labandu’s death have prompted an investigation by the local police. They are working to piece together the events that led to his tragic end. The authorities have not ruled out foul play, and they are urging anyone with information to come forward.

This incident is not an isolated one in Assam. Just recently, a similar shocking discovery occurred in South Salmara. On Saturday morning, locals found a dead body in the waters of the Brahmaputra River at the ferry ghat in Dutiya Khanda (Pukamari) within the Maharir Char locality. This ghat is frequently used by residents for their daily commutes, making the discovery even more alarming.

This gruesome find caused a stir among the local populace, leading to a large gathering at the scene. The South Salmara Police Station was informed, and officers quickly arrived to recover the body from the water.

Both incidents have heightened concerns about safety and security among the residents of Assam. The local communities are on edge, fearing the potential of more such incidents. The police have intensified their patrols and are investigating both cases to find any possible connections and to ensure justice for the victims.

The discovery of Labandu’s body has particularly struck a chord with the people of Digboi. Known as a peaceful senior citizen, his untimely death has left a void in his village. Residents are demanding swift action from the authorities to uncover the truth and bring any culprits to justice.

Meanwhile, community leaders are calling for increased vigilance and cooperation among residents to prevent such tragedies. They are urging locals to report any suspicious activities and to stay alert to avoid any further incidents.
