`ULFA chief injured in Myanmar crackdown`
Yangon: Reports said ULFA commander-in-chief Paresh Baruah was shot at by the Myanmarese Army on Friday.
It is believed that the elusive ULFA chief was injured in the crackdown which Myanmar’s Army has launched against Indian insurgents.
"Baruah, 55, has sustained bullet injuries during a counter-insurgency operation in Myanmar," a leading daily quoted a source from the Assam Police as saying. It added the Union Home Ministry confirmed the attack but said he "survived".
Myanmar security forces had about a week ago launched a major offensive against Indian militants, especially the NSCN-Khaplang (National Socialist Council of Nagaland - Khaplang), in the Naga Hills along the China border.
The crackdown comes ahead of Myanmar`s Interior Minister Delhi visit next month.
ULFA, along with Naga and Manipuri militants, has a number of camps along the Myanmar-China border.
