Govt-UPDS ceasefire extended term for 6 months

The ceasefire between UPDS and government has been extended for yet another term of six months. The truce pact extension came up a day after the Karbi militant outfit seeking it on condition that there must be sitting between the two sides in a period of three months. A day after it had expressed willingness, the centre responded and extended truce for another 6 month period. Notably, the ceasefire term ended on January 31, 2007. Both the sides came forward to renew the pact and instead the militant cadres went underground. But of late, the outfit operating in Karbi hills wrote it to the Union home ministry and the Assam police wishing the extension of the pact.
