ULFA bombs oil tankers in Duliajan; threatens more strikes

Hardly a month after it got reshaped, ULFA’s anti-talk faction struck at two oil tankers in Duliajan on Friday. The outfit further threatened to launch more devastating attacks alleging unabetted exploitation on the state’s natural resources. The banned insurgent outfit bombed two oil tankers causing a ravaging inferno in Tipling on Friday. Around ten fire tenders were called to bring the situation under control. But it took several hours for the OIL authorities to douse the fire.

The insurgent outfit on Friday has owned up the responsibility alleging that these strikes would continue. Notably, a reshaped anti-talk faction of the three decade old insurgent outfit last month warned of a string of devastating attacks at the state’s vital spots.
