ULFA, NDFB runing extortion in city

Insurgent activists are camping in some parts of the city to run the extortion drive. The Paltanbazar police have apprehended two ULFA cadres on Tuesday night near Lachitnagar while they were on the way to collect cash from one Agarwalla in the area. They have been identified as Prahlad Saikia and Bipul Kalita.

According to police sources, NDFB activists have also bash in the city for the purpose. The arrest of Bhimsing, an activist of the Bodo insurgent outfit in Rupnagar is an example. Bhimsing’s confessional statement has provided the police a lot of inputs to bust the base of a section of NDFB rebels. Acting on these statements, police conducted a raid at a rented house in Durgasarobar in Shantipur area in the city and recovered some extortion notices from the house where six NDFB militants have been camping to run the drive. Also, police recovered a CD showing NDFB chief Ranjan Daimary addressing his cadres of the third one battalion after the completion of the training.
