A top police official on Wednesday claimed that Ulfa hardliners loyal to the outfit’s commander-in-chief, Paresh Baruah, might disturb the upcoming elections with the help of the NSCN (K).
According to Times of India reports, “Baruah’s followers have got logistic support from the NSCN (K) and may target upper Assam that lies close to Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh,” the official said. Both outfits use Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh to enter Indian territory from their hideouts in Myanmar. “We’ve reports that Ulfa may disturb the poll process and attack Congress candidates and workers,” he added.
On Wednesday again, police arrested three alleged Ulfa hardliners, Biju Sonowal alias Raju Rajkhowa and Jayanta alias Bitul Moran and Dikush Moran, in Guwahati.
They did not rule out the possibility of the trio’s involvement in the March 14 bomb attack on the Congress’s state headquarters, here. Mobile handsets with Bangladeshi SIM cards, debit cards and a huge amount of cash were found on them. “We’re keeping a close watch on all entry points to Guwahati,” the official said.
On the other hand, Ulfa chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa has been busy holding consultations to finalise the agenda of the proposed peace talks between the outfit and the government. Baruah, however, is dead against holding any such negotiations.
“Our chairman is busy finalising the talks agenda. He is currently on a tour of upper Assam. He may finish consultative meetings by March 26,” one of Rajkhowa’s key aides said.
