ULFA leader Prabal Neog released from jail

In a crucial turn around, Top United Liberation Front of Assam leader Prabal Neog alias Benudhar Bora has been released from the Dibrugarh Central Jail this afternoon. At the time of release UFA Leaders, Jiten Dutta, Joon Bhuyan and Junaki Bora - mother of Prabal Neog accompanied him. Neog was arrested along with his wife and son by the police from Tezpur on 17th September 2008.

This seems to be a significant step as the ULFA-Governments peace process, as the A and C Company of 28th Battalion of ULFA declared unilateral Ceasefire with the state Government some time back creating an environment for the peace. Later the ceasefire group led by the ULFA Leader Mrinal Hazarika have been expelled by the top ULFA authority.
