 GUWAHATI: The anti-talks faction outlawed United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) led by its fugitive ‘army chief’ Paresh Barua has issued a statement threatening to train its gun on ‘Indians living in Assam’ in retaliation to the ‘atrocities perpetrated on innocent Assamese people by the COBRA Force of colonial India’ in Tinsukia district of eastern Assam in the name of operation against the ULFA militants.

Combat Battalion for Resolute Action (COBRA) personnel have been deployed in eastern Assam areas to tackle the renewed threat from the anti-talks faction of the ULFA that is trying hard to regroup in the state.

The ULFA statement signed by its publicity secretary Arunodoy Dahotia and e-mailed to the media here on Thursday afternoon said the latest actions of the COBRA force indicated that the force taking advantage of Armed Forces (Special Power) Acts was bent upon let loose a reign of terror among the people of Assam. The outfit has threatened to resort to the same terror tactics to make its presence felt.

A security source informed that the Army, Assam Police and paramilitary forces operating the under the Unified command have intensified operation against ULFA insurgents in eastern Assam districts on the basis of information that some groups of fresh recruits of the ULFA had sneaked into the state from Myanmar through Arunachal Pradesh to strike terror in the state.
