Now, ULFA (I) flags flown in Assam


Amid reports of many youths joining the outlawed ULFA (Independent) or ULFA (I), and the banned militant outfit resorting to subversive activities in recent months, flags of the outfit were flown at various places across Assam leading to a flutter in Assam Police.

ULFA (I) flags were flown in Guwahati, Dhemaji and at Mariani in Jorhat district.

Two flags of the ULFA’s anti-talks faction were hoisted at Borbari locality in Guwahati while two more flags of the militant outfit were flown along NH 15 at Samarajan in Dhemaji district and at a school at Mariani in Jorhat district.

While one flag was hoisted inside Borbari High School, the second one was flown atop a nearby hillock.

The flags were spotted by people in the three places earlier in the morning following which police were informed about the developments in the three places.

The flags were later brought down.

It’s not known as to who had hoisted the ULFA (I) flags amid apprehensions that the flags might have been flown by sympathizers or overground linkmen of the outfit.
