Guwahati: The ULFA`s anti-talk faction on Saturday
claimed that a section of "vested interests" was using fake
letterhead of the outfit to issue extortion notices to people
in Upper Assam.
"It has been brought to our notice that extortion notices
with our letterhead have been sent out to small traders and
teachers. The letterhead (used in these notices) is fake,"
anti-talk ULFA Publicity Secretary Arunodoy Dohotiya said in
an e-mailed statement.
A "conspiracy" has been hatched against the outfit in
Kakopathar, Doomdooma, Makum and other areas of Tinsukia
district where fake extortion notices are sent out and
threatening calls are also being made, he alleged.
"We clarify that the ULFA is not involved in any such
incident and appeal to the people not to give any heed to such
extortion notices by vested interests," Dohotiya added.
