A hardcore anti-talk ULFA cadre was killed at an encounter with security forces on Sunday in Tinsukia district. But the banned insurgent outfit has denied death of any cadre in the encounter.


Sunday’s encounter took place at Dikak Sonjan in the afternoon. The incident took place when policemen on checking duties on the street asked a group of ULFAmen to halt when they were riding on a Tata Sumo.


One of the armed cadres started firing at the police team. When police retaliated, the armed youth died on the spot. Police seized a pistol from the vehicle inside the vehicle. Meanwhile, ULFA has denied any encounter with security forces in Tinsukia district.
