Shillong: Two ULFA militants surrendered with
weapons before the BSF today, which apprehended three
infiltrators from different places in Assam.

Madhav Bora and Abhijay Mising, both belonging to the
outfit`s `28th battalion`, surrendered before the border
guards in Golaghat district.

They also deposited a .22 mm pistol, a 9 mm pistol and
some live rounds, a BSF statement issued here said.

The militants joined the outfit in 2000 and claimed they
underwent training in Myanmar.

However, a person Sagar Toppo, who claimed to be
`commander` of the ULFA`s `28th battalion`, called up local TV
channels and said the two did not belong to the group, the
statement said.

In Dhubri district, the BSF apprehended three persons
hailing from Bangladesh while they were trying to enter India.
Fake Indian currency having face value of Rs 3,000
was seized from them, the statement said.
