Centre keeps Assam on ULFA R-day alert

The Centre sounds alert in Assam and its neighbouring states in view of ULFA Raising Day slated for April 8.

Dispur received the Home Ministry advisory on Wednesday with directives to tighten security across the region.

The Home Ministry asked the Assam government and the neighbouring states to be on alert in the run-up to the ULFA raising day on April 7 when the group usually tries to launch terror attacks.

The Centre advised the states to deploy adequate security personnel at sensitive locations, oil installations, railway tracks and stations, bus terminus, markets and religious places to foil any attempt by the insurgents to disturb peace.
