NEW DELHI, March 16 � The Centre has ruled out the possibility of outlawed ULFA maintaining permanent camps in neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh.
�There is no report of any permanent camp of the ULFA in Arunachal Pradesh, although there are reports of some activities of ULFA in the State,� said Minister of State for Home Affairs Ramachandran in a Rajya Sabha reply.
There has been some improvement in the overall militancy situation in the North East in the last year though militancy related incidents continue in some States, he added.
In 2009, Assam recorded 424 incidents, marking an increase over 2008, when 387 incidents took place. However, killing of civilians had declined last year with 152 deaths, while in 2008, 245 civilians fell to bullets of insurgents, he added.
Manipur continued to lead the table, with the State recording 659 incidents last year, which was marginally less than the previous year, when 740 incidents were recorded.
