Maoist leader arrested in Golaghat

Golaghat Police today apprehended a dreaded Maoist leader from Khakandguri under Dergaon. The arrested cadre has been identified as Pallav Charingia Phukan alias Akon alias Phukan who hails from Tinsukia and working as an organiser with the banned organisation. Police sources said that Pallav Charingia Phukan along with his associates were organising a meeting at a place in Khakandguri. Acting on a tip off a special team of Golaghat police led by Additional SP Numal Mahto raided the spot and apprehended the Maoist. However two other cadres namely Diganta Thamong of Arunachal Pradesh and Bikash of Karbi Anglong were managed to escape from the spot. In the meeting plannings were made for Rhino poaching with the help of Naga extremists which unveils the Maoist organisation's link with other insurgents groups in the North East. It is to be mentioned that Golaghat police apprehended the most wanted Maoist leader Aditya Bora from the same place last month.
