ULFA-I tries to incite fresh violence in upper Assam; cops intensify action

Guwahati: Banned militant outfit United Liberation Front of Asom – Independent (ULFA-I) is planning to incite violence in upper Assam, sending policemen into tizzy.

“A group of ULFA-I militants have made a strategy to enter Tinsukia district and spread to different areas of upper Assam. The militants are planning a major assassination attempt on the Assam Arunachal border,” intelligence sources said.

On condition of anonymity, an officer from security forces said, “They must be prevented, otherwise, the state may witness a new bloodbath.”

Meanwhile, local police are conducting operations in the dense forest along with some sensitive areas of the Assam-Arunachal border to foil militants attempt.

After Himanta Biswa Sarma became Assam Chief Minister, attempts were made to create an environment for talks with ULFA-I, and chief commander of the outfit Paresh Barua had announced a unilateral ceasefire in honour of the Chief Minister’s positive efforts.

But, as the banned militant outfit is facing a financial crisis in the Myanmar camp, they are planning to take the path of violence once again.

According to police sources, a group of militants are planning to set up a camp on the Assam-Arunachal border and hide in Tinsukia, which was the hotbed of the banned outfit.

Militant Rupam Asom, who knows the upper Assam area like the back of his hand, is leading the ULFA-I militants.

The police know that once the militants enter Tinsukia district, it will be “difficult to prevent sabotage”.

The police have the specific inputs that the militants will first try to target the managers of various tea gardens in Tinsukia district to extort money.
