Hardcore ULFA team in Guwahati to carry out strike!

Amid brisk preparation for ULFA-government peace parleys, a team of hardcore ULFA cadres has managed to sneak into Guwahati, possibly, to carry out strike. This has forced security forces to fan in the nook and corner of the city to thwart any subversive attempts. Police have arrested two ULFA rebels along with a linkman from Guwahati on Sunday.

Acting on a tip off, police have arrested a senior ULFA rebel Paresh Deka alias Joy from Hengrabari area. A powerful hand grenade has also been recovered from him. He was brought to Dispur police station immediately after the arrest. Joy is known to be sergent major of ULFA's 27th battalion.

Hours after it Dispur police arrested another ULFA cadre Gautom Nath from Sixth Mile area in the city. He was arrested under the Sixth Mile Flyover at around 9 in the evening. A hand grenade was also recovered from him.

Apart from this, Dispur police on Sunday arrested one Bharat Kakoti for ULFA link from Hengrabari area.
