Confirmed, Paresh Baruah’s nephew Munna joins ULFA(I)


ULFA (Independent) chief Paresh Baruah’s nephew Munna Baruah, who has been missing since the past few days, has joined ULFA(I). Another youth named Abhijit Gogoi @ Icheng, a software engineer by profession, has also reportedly joined the recalcitrant outfit.

Tinsukia Police have confirmed that Paresh Baruah’s nephew Munna along with Abhijit have indeed joined ULFA(I).

Incidentally Munna, son of Paresh Baruah’s elder brother Bimal, was reported missing for the past couple of days from Digboi and did not report to the IOC (AOD) office where he worked as a junior engineer.

Family members had lodged two complaints with the police in Digboi and Chabua amid reports that Munna had fled to join the rebel outfit his uncle Paresh Barua heads. And with Tinsukia police confirming Munna’s joining the militant outfit, the worst fears of his family members have come true.

Meanwhile, Munna’s mother appealed to her son to return home.


“Come home; we are waiting for you,” his mother said with folded hands and tears flowing down her cheeks.

Not much, however, is known about Abhijit Gogoi who is also said to have joined ULFA(I).
