‘Paresh Baruah trying to regroup northeast ultras’

The ULFA-I led by Paresh Baruah is trying to regroup insurgent outfits and Maoists and might convene a meeting of the groups next week, Assam’s new DGP Khagen Sharma said on Friday.

‘Paresh Baruah is bringing northeast militant groups together. He has invited them and the Maoists for a meeting next week. Outside support like that of the ISI's, is also there,’ Sharma told reporters here.

The Kamatapur Liberation Organisation (KLO) active in Assam and West Bengal as well as the anti-talk NDFB (Songbijit) group were also invited by Baruah for the meeting, the DGP said who took charge today.

‘This kind of experiment has failed earlier. If they regroup, we will have joint operations with other NE states,’ Sharma asserted.

The DGP said, the government would like to see Paresh Baruah participate in the ongoing peace talks with the ULFA faction headed by Arabinda Rajkhowa.

To a query on which subversive group was the biggest threat to Assam now, Sharma said, ‘The Maoists are the biggest threat. They have about 100 trained cadres in the state and many supporters.’
