TEZPUR, Dec 28 - Assam Police DGP Mukesh Sahay today appealed to ULFA chief Paresh Baruah to join the mainstream in the greater interest of the state.

Interacting with a group of reporters here, the police chief, however, admitted that ULFA is still active in many parts of the state, but the police force is now ready to foil any possible attack from the insurgent group. �Police is well-equipped to combat any possible subversive activities of the militant groups,� he said after attending a high-level security meeting with the officials of the CRPF, SSB, Army and Assam Rifles in connection with publication of first part of the draft NRC.

Replying to a query on the security arrangements for the proposed draft NRC publication, Sahay informed that altogether 85 companies of additional forces have been deployed in Assam, to step up vigil in certain pockets. �The security arrangements have been geared up. Moreover, if necessary, army personnel will be engaged so that no untoward incident occurs after the publication of the NRC.� Regarding arrest of KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi under NSA, the DGP said : �He was arrested as per law�. He also ruled out any political pressure regarding his arrest.

ADGP, Assam Police, Kula Saikia who was also present in the interaction, said that everyone has to abide by the Court decision. �There were several cases registered against him and Akhil was booked accordingly. We did not impose any case from our side,� Saikia claimed.
