ULFA launches major offensive at police station

ULFA steps up attack in the run up to the Republic Day slated for January 26. The banned insurgent outfit launched a major offensive in Sivasagar district on Monday midnight leaving a policeman injured and damaging a police station.

The incident took place on Mondayu midnight at Namtula in Sonari police station where the ULFA militants sprayed bullets at the police station for around 20 minute leaving a commando jawan injured.

Amid firing the militants lobbed a powerful grenade at the police station. But it missed the target and fell at a stranded truck which caught a huge fire. On the other hand, three vehicles inside the police station campus were riddled with repeated bullet injuries. Later top ranked police officials were rushed to the spot but by then the militants vanished in the thick darkness.

Security forces have cordoned off the entire area and have launched a combing operation to nab the ULFA men involved in the attack. ULFA is yet to make any statement. But police call it a handiwork of ULFA to make its presence felt before the Republic Day.
