Three other clashes were reported following the murders of the Bodod tribal youths. On Friday night, an unidentified gang fired at a house in Simb-urgaon, killing one person and leaving four others of the same family injured.

The violence intensified after a mob stormed through Bodo village on Saturday evening, and killed three people while injuring six others. Several houses were reportedly burnt down in the attacks as well.

Another incident was reported from Maktai village, in which two were reportedly injured after gunfire broke out.

The state government has announced an ex-Gratia of ₹300,000 each for the victims' family and ₹50,000 for those injured.
