Ultras suspected to be ULFA kidnap top Cement Corp official

Guwahati : There was another high profile kidnapping in Assam. Cement Corporation of India (CCI) official Kailash Nath Jha and his security officer, Madan Kumar Bora were abducted at gun point by suspected militants at a place which falls under Bilai outpost of Bokajan Police Station, about 300 kilometres from Guwahati on Sunday. Police Officials suspect the Karbi Longri National Liberation Front (KLNLF) to be involved in the kidnapping. The KLNLF has very close links to the ULFA as well and hence officials have not ruled out the hand of ULFA in the kidnapping as well. CCI has a cement plant at Bokajan. CCI officials were not available for comments. This high profile kidnapping comes at a time when the state has yet to recover from the abduction and killing of Mr P C Ram, the FCI official. Police investigations are on.
