Tinsukia: Three United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) (I) cadres have been apprehended in Tinsukia town of Assam.
The three men were apprehended along with sophisticated arms and ammunition by security forces in Tarani Reserve Forest on Tuesday.
The ULFA is a separatist outfit operating in North-East India for the indigenous Assamese people. Their main aim is to establish a sovereign Assam with an armed struggle. The Central government had banned ULFA in 1990 citing it as a terrorist organization, while the United States Department of State lists it under “other groups of concern.”
