KOHIMA, MAY 16 | Publish Date: 5/16/2019 11:36:16 AM IST

Assam Rifles apprehended three ULFA (I) cadres;   SS Cpl Bubul Moran alias Tiger Asom, SS L/Cpl Binondo Dahotia alias Swadesh Asom, and SS Pvt Chandrakant Borhohain alias Tipong Asom along with sophisticated arms and ammunition in Tarani Reserve Forest of Tinsukia on May 14.

A press release by PRO(Defence), Col C Konwer stated that  based on reliable intelligence input regarding cadres of ULFA (I) crossing over the Indo Myanmar border  to carry out nefarious activities in Upper Assam, a joint operation was launched by Indian army and police, adding that sustained and intense pressure was exerted  which prevented these cadres from getting in touch with their over ground workers to execute their tasks. 
The release stated that extensive and deliberate efforts were made to convince the cadres to give up their arms and surrender.  Their families and friends were also contacted to influence them to surrender and save their lives.  
The release added that “the efforts of security forces resulted in the cadres realizing the futility of their situation and they finally surrendered to the Army and Police without a fight.”
One each of AK 56, AK-81, and HK rifles has been recovered from them along with two hand grenades, nine magazines and 425 rounds of ammunition. This operation is part of the ongoing crackdown by security forces on the insurgent organizations active in Upper Assam, the release added. 
In another incident, an active ULFA (I) insurgent at Disangmukh, Sivasagar, SS Cpl Podum Asom was also apprehended on May 13. 
He  had also served as a personal security guard of senior ULFA(I) leaders in Taga camp in Myanmar from 2013 to 2016.” Information regarding presence of was received from the local population who have rejected the duplicity and falsehood spread by the ULFA (I) leaders,”  a press release by PRO(Defence), Col C Konwer stated.
The release stated, “ Apprehension and surrender of a large number of insurgents to the security forces has given a severe blow to the misplaced ideology of ULFA (I) and its sympathizers. There are reports that due to the misleading dogma of ULFA (I) and harsh conditions in camps, more insurgents are likely to give up their association with the proscribed outfit. It is becoming difficult for the ULFA (I)  to persuade cadres  to fight for  a pseudo cause  in extreme conditions and risking their lives, while the leadership and their families are enjoying luxurious lives. “
The release further , “ The leaders of the proscribed insurgent group, safely ensconced at comfortable locations outside India have been luring the innocent youth from upper Assam into their organization. 
The over ground workers have been recruiting them by making false promises of money and better life. For most of them, it’s a one way ticket as they are never allowed to return to the safety of  their homes. 
Now realizing the futility of joining ULFA (I), the insurgents are abondoning the  false cause and  are  joining the  mainstream.”
