Bhimajuli massacre of 2009 was named after Bhimajuli, a village in Assam, India, where NDFB militants of its anti-talks faction led by Ranjan Daimary fired indiscriminately at villagers in Bhimajuli, in Sonitpur district near the Assam-Arunachal border [1] killing five people on the spot[2] and six later, including an eight-year-old girl on October 4, 2009.[1]

Protests broke out soon after and angry residents came out of their houses with bows and arrows in their hands. They also didn't allow CRPF jawans to enter their village.[3] The outraged villagers accused the government of failing to maintain law and order.

Different organisations such as the All Assam Gorkha Student Union,[1] All Assam Students Union, All Assam President of Asom Xatra Mahaxabha Bhadra Krishna Goswami condemned the killings at Bhimajuli in a press meet.[4]
