Forces directed to step up ops against ultras

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 22 - The State Government has directed the police and security forces involved in the counter-insurgency operations to intensify the operations against militants following the recent attack on Army personnel by a group of ultras belonging to the United Liberation Front of Asom (Independent) and NSCN(K) at Pengeree in Tinsukia district.

Official sources said the meeting of the Unified Command, chaired by the Chief Secretary VP Pipersenia, reviewed the recent attack. Assam, by and large, remained peaceful for quite some time and the ultras, despite their best efforts, could not strike during the Republic and Independence Day celebrations.

Sources said that the Unified Command decided to step up operations in the Upper Assam districts, particularly the districts bordering Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland as the ultras have reportedly been sneaking into the state through those states. Though there is no report of movement of militants in other parts of the state, all the forces on the ground have been directed to keep a close watch on the situation to ensure that the militants cannot indulge in any kind of violence or other unlawful activities.

Senior officers of all the stakeholders involved in the counter-insurgency operations including Army, Police, Central paramilitary forces and central agencies took part in the meeting.
