In yet another strike in the trouble torn North Cachar hills district, 8 people were killed by suspected DHD(J) militants at Faiding under Mahur police station in retaliation of Saturday’s joint operation at their camp at Heralu where they claimed to have lost 12 cadres. But Army has not yet recovered even a single body.
All these eight people killed at Faiding were workers engaged at the Broad Gauge conversion work in the hill district. However, the militant outfit has yet to own up the responsibility.
Menawhile, silence is prevailing in the hills district a day after a fierce fighting. But the entire incident is mired in mystery as only four bodies have so far been recovered and yet according to army sources not even a single body has been recovered. The incident was followed by the outfit’s diktat to stop all works at the railway projects, cement factories and the Umrangsu power project. Hours after it, a railway employee died when some unidentified miscreants were striking at the Badrongdisa railway station in the district. Towards Sunday night, a railway employee died when some miscreants attacked the Wadrongdisa Railway station to spread panic among the railway employees.
The Heralu incident was followed by the outfit’s announcement of suspension of the unilateral ceasefire for a week and they accordingly passed a diktat to the projects to stop its work in the district. They warned the authorities of dire consequences if the on going projects of railway broad gauge construction and National Highway construction are not stopped.

The incident took place on Mondayu midnight at Namtula in Sonari police station where the ULFA militants sprayed bullets at the police station for around 20 minute leaving a commando jawan injured.
Amid firing the militants lobbed a powerful grenade at the police station. But it missed the target and fell at a stranded truck which caught a huge fire. On the other hand, three vehicles inside the police station campus were riddled with repeated bullet injuries. Later top ranked police officials were rushed to the spot but by then the militants vanished in the thick darkness.
