Fierce Fighting: 2 ultras, PC Ram suspected dead

Guwahati : A fierce fighting between ULFA and security forces near the city on the wee hours on Thursday left two ultras and the kidnapped FCI officer P C Ram dead.

Reliable sources here say acting on secret inputs that a group of dreaded ULFA leaders were halting at Burka near Changsari with the kidnapped FCI executive director, the police aided by the Army, raided the house of Govinda Deka of Panitema gaon at around 8-30 evening on Wednesday.

The heavy exchange of firing that rocked the entire area continued till 2.00 am on Thursday.

Post that the police have recovered two bullet riddled bodies of ULFA leaders alongwith a person who was around 52/55 years from inside the house.

The ultras are yet to be identified. But the third one is suspected to be Dr PC Ram who was kidnapped on April 17 by the ULFA on his way to the city. But due to the on going controversy on P C Ram, concrete details are yet to come out.

The police team was led by Deputy Inspector General of Police for central western zone Gyanendra Pratap Singh assisted by Kamrup Superintendent of Police Debojit Hazarika and Superintendent of Police for special branch Jitmol Doley.

Notably, the killing of Dr Ram is mired in controversy after a decomposed dead body was recovered earlier which was identified to be of Dr Ram, by his son, Prabin. The body was airlifted to New Delhi by Dr Ram’s family for funeral.

But strangely enough, a person claiming to be Dr Ram had spoken to Prabin a few a days back from ULFA captivity. Prabin claims his father is still alive and recently Prabin and his mother called on Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and sought his help. Details are awaited.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday evening rapped the top ranked police officials for the Ram controversy. He was talking to the officials at his residence at the Koinadhara after being arived in the city.
