ULFA’s anti–talk faction steps up activities a week ahead of their Foundation Day slated for April 7. The outfit claimed to have killed three Assam Rifles jawans at an encounter in Sivasagar district of Assam on Saturday.

The encounter took place at Takubasti under Charaideo police station bordering Nagaland. The heavy exchange of firing took place in the evening when a five-member group of the outfit opened fire on an Assam Rifles patrol party. A hardcore cadre was believed to have sustained serious injury. But he managed to flee from the spot. Army recovered one AK-86 automatic rifle from the encounter spot. Assam police and Assam Rifles troops rushed to the area and a search operation was launched to nab the militants.
