Encounter in North Lakhimpur: 2 ULFA cadres killed

Two ULFA militants were left killed at a joint encounter of police and army in Silikhapukhuri area of North Lakhimpur district early in the morning today. Acting on a tip off, police and Army's Bihar Regiment conducted a raid in the area at 4-30 in the morning. Two of the three ULFA militants died on the spot while the remaining one managed to flee from the spot. Later, 2 pistols have been recovered from the dead ULFA militants.

In yet another incident last night, a police team from Kakotibari had a narrow escape while a powerful blast rattled Timon Sarupathar gaon in Sivasagar district at 10-30 on Friday evening minutes after a police vehicle passed the spot. No casualty has been reported. A huge hole was created on the spot under the impact of the blast. This has forced the police to resort to seven rounds of firing. The police have suspected it to be a handiwork of ULFA saying it was a remote control blast. Moreover, the Army's 44 Field Regiment recovered a 15 kg IED near the Shantipur tea Estate in Sonari on Saturday morning.
