Kokrajhar police to grill Daimary

By Correspondent

KOKRAJHAR, June 6 � NDFB supremo Ranjan Daimary will be interrogated soon by Kokrajhar police, informed Kokrajhar Superintendent of Police PK Dutta today.

Talking to mediapersons, Dutta said that three major cases against Daimary were related to the incident of targeting an MP and his convoy at Tipkai in Parbotjhora subdivision in April 2009, killing of ABSU president Swambla Basumatary in 1996 and looting armoury of 7 APBn at Charaikhola in Kokrajhar district in 1992.

Dutta also revealed that there were evidences establishing links between NDFB militants and political parties like BPPF, which was of serious concern. This information was gathered on the basis of interrogation of some arrested NDFB cadres in recent times. He appealed to political parties to abstain from maintaining links with any militant outfit or group.

The senior police also revealed that it would be wrong to undermine the strength of NDFB as a militant outfit as a good number of the outfit�s council members were still beyond the security net and there were inputs that the cadres were operating from several hideouts. Sabotage attempts on railway tracks in particular revealed that the outfit was going in for massive attacks. As a result railway tracks, coaches, major installations etc., had been put on high alert, he added.

Dutta further informed that among the active NDFB cadres Fukan Boro was known as an explosive expert. Of late he had increased his movements along with a few others in the northern part of NH-31. Although some of his associates had been arrested, Fukan Boro was still at large, the SP said adding that a group of 40 to 50 trained NDFB ultras had managed to sneak into India and were taking shelter in inaccessible locations in Tipkai area of Kokrajhar district.

Dutta further revealed that as many as 34 NDFB cadres died in encounter, 52 were apprehended with huge quantities of arms and ammunition in 2009, while 10 NDFB cadres died in encounter and 22 were arrested till date this year.

Meanwhile, Dutta also referred to specific inputs that KLO supremo Jiban Sing was presently roaming in the border areas of Kokrajhar, Bongaigaon and Dhubri districts of lower Assam keeping nexus with ULFA cadres to strengthen ultra activities.

On the other hand, the Kokrajhar SP also did not rule out the movement of some Maoist activists in the bordering area, but said that strong vigil was being maintained.
