ULFA cadre nabbed with Chinese grenade
Guwahati: A joint team of Assam Police and the Army Wednesday morning arrested one youth and recovered a Chinese grenade from his possession.
Police later claimed the youth, identified as Nabajit Baishya, was a member of the anti-talk faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) led by Paresh Baruah, who is living in exile somewhere in northern Myanmar.
"Based on a tip-off, we have carried out a search operation on a bus at Sipajhar in Darrang district Wednesday morning and arrested Nabajit Baishya. The anti-talk ULFA cadre was on his way to Tezpur from Guwahati," police said, adding that Baishya hails from Tihu in Lower Assam`s Nalbari district.
Police suspected that Baishya procured the grenade from some other cadre of the outfit and was on his way to Tezpur to carry out some subversive activities in that town.
On Saturday last, police seized 12 grenades and six detonators from a bus on the remote Indo-Bhutan border in Lower Assam`s Kokrajhar district and arrested two persons for possessing those.
