RECOVERY OF WARLIKE STORES FROM ULFA CADRES
4/2/2012

On 31 Mar 12, 6 Assam Rifles of 7 Sector under IGAR(N), received an input about presence of five ULFA cadres in gen area Takumpathar in Tizit Sub Division. A party of 01 Officer, 02 JCOs and 20 OR cordoned the house where the ULFA cadres were hiding. The party after cordoning the house, challenged the cadres and asked them to surrender. Cadres were surprised by the action of the Assam Rifles troops and started firing indiscriminately and hurled a grenade towards the officer, which fell short and blasted in a nala. Fazed by the effective fire by the team, the cadres started running towards the forest on the rear side of the house. As the cadres came out in open, one of the cadre was hit by a bullet fired by the party. Taking advantage of the thick undergrowth and the forest, the cadres managed to escape into the Abhaypur Reserve Forest. Following warlike stores were recovered from the location :- Rifle AK 47 – 01, AK 47 ammunition – 87 rds, Explosives – 03 Kgs, IED – 01, Battery for IEDs – 19. Recovery of warlike stores and explosives indicate that the ULFA Cadres were planning to engineer a major blast/incident, which has been averted by the timely action of Assam Rifles, thus saving numerous lives and property.
