Suspected rebels shot and killed a governing Congress party member amid a surge of violence ahead of India's national day celebrations later this month, police said Wednesday. The assailants attacked Chandra Chetia outside his home on Tuesday night in Naharkotia, a town 550 kilometers east of Gauhati, the Assam state capital, firing at him from a close range, said Absar Hazarika, the local state administrator. The shooting followed nearly half a dozen bomb attacks on Monday and Tuesday which killed at least one person and wounded up to 25 others in the state. Chetia, 48, was the fourth Congress party member killed since the United Liberation Front of Asom, or ULFA - a rebel group fighting for a separate homeland in Assam state - stepped up its violent campaign earlier this month after peace talks with the federal government failed.
