Security forces are spreading tentacles to nab the ULFA militants who are unleashing terror in Sivasagar town with a powerful blast that killed one person on Monday evening.
Ten others have been injured in the blast who were rushed to the hospital. The injured have been identified as Krishna Sahu, Prakash Yadav, Arun Dey, Hari Sahu, Sadhu Khan.
The blast took place amid a simmering war of words between ULFA’s anti-talk faction and superintendent of police.
The controversy erupted on Sunday when body of a local youth was found in Sonari. Police claimed it a handiwork of ULFA. ULFA’s anti-talk faction on Monday held SP Akhilesh Singh responsible for the incident.
NO outfit has so far owned up the responsibility. But ULFA’s hand is suspected where the banned insurgent outfit is remaining active in the district.
