The Indian state of Assam has been the venue of ethnic clashes since decades but in 2012, these clashes have spiraled high because of Indian government’s callousness and mismanagement. In July 2012, bloody clashes took place between the ethnic Bodos and migrants of Bangladeshi origin. The first incident was reported to have taken place on 20 July 2012. The death toll reached seventy seven by 8 August 2012, while over 400,000 people were displaced from almost 400 villages, being forced to take shelter in 270 relief camps. Eleven people have been reported missing.
