Pro-talks ULFA call to shun violence

GUWAHATI: Pro-talks United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) leader, Anup Chetia has appealed to all groups and organisations to refrain from violence as nothing can be achieved through attacks like the one carried out here on Wednesday.

Twelve persons, including two security personnel, were injured in a grenade blast in front of a shopping mall on RG Baruah Road on Wednesday evening.

“I do not know who is behind the attack or the purpose of it, but what I know is that by carrying out such attacks, only common people are harmed and their social life gets disrupted. No organisation, whether it is ULFA (Independent) or any other group can resolve issues through such attacks,” Chetia, who is the general secretary of the pro-talks faction of ULFA, told reporters here on Thursday.

Reports say that the target of the peak-hour attack was the security personnel who were on naka checking duty at the point in front of the mall even as police are investigating the incident.
“Twelve innocent people have been injured in the blast, which is a matter of concern. It was a close shave for me as I had passed through that road some time before the incident took place,” he said.
