In an operation conducted earlier today, the Guwahati police apprehended three individuals suspected of being associated as linkmen with the United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent (ULFA-I). This incident took place in BBC Colony, located in Guwahati’s Maligaon area on Tuesday afternoon.

During the search, the police discovered a pistol and some ammunition in their possession. The individuals taken into custody are Asim Adhikari, Moon Debnath, and Rupjyoti Das.

Authorities reveal that Asim, closely associated with ULFA-I, had been residing in Guwahati disguised as a computer operator. They state that he actively engaged in recruiting young individuals to join the militant group.

On the preceding Sunday, authorities apprehended four individuals on suspicion of their connection to the recent Sivasagar blast.

Based on preliminary details, authorities link the arrest of the four individuals to their suspected involvement in the grenade explosion that occurred at 149 CRPF in Joysagar on December 9. A curious explosion shook the surroundings of the Lichubari Army camp in Jorhat, Assam, on December 14 right after 4 days of a recent grenade blast in the Sivasagar district, Assam.

Reportedly, on November 22, a prior grenade explosion detonated outside an Army camp in Dirak, Tinsukia district, causing no reported casualties.

Ongoing investigations are in progress. Subsequently, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) took on the task of investigating the numerous blasts occurring throughout the state.

Sources suggest a suspicion that these four individuals were in close collaboration with the proscribed militant group, ULFA-I. The leader of the organisation, Paresh Baruah, admitted that his group was responsible for the attack.
