Anti national activities gone down

Dispur claims to have reduced the anti-national activities on intensified security measures to curb the fundamentalist forces. In an official statement, the government said that it was aware of external and internal forces that include insurgent groups joining hands together and trying to set up a base in the state and the northeastern region to destabilise the country.

The statement reads: Prompt action by law-enforcing agencies have led to the arrest of cadres belonging to Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami and Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh with cache of arms and incriminating documents.

A radical group, the Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam, founded in the 1990s, has become a non-entity following operations against it, said the statement.

Further, the government has also asked the National Investigation Agency to probe specific terrorist attack cases to bring conspiracy angle into the open.

The reaction came after the All Assam Students' Union (Aasu) alleged inaction on the part of the state government in curbing activities of fundamentalist forces and infiltration from across the border.
