Assam Police refutes ULFA-I’s claims on extortion

Refuting all claims of extortion allegations made by the banned rebel militant outfit United Liberation Front of Asom (Independent) [ULFA-I], Assam police said that the outfit is running a propaganda.

Recently, the outfit alleged that he “spies” of the Army and Assam police were issuing extortion demands to the tea gardens and business establishments in Dibrugarh and Tinsukia in the outfit’s name.

A highly placed Police source said, “The outfit is running propaganda to defame the state police force. We have found out that most of the extortion notes issued in Upper Assam, especially in Dibrugarh and Tinsukia, were fake. In 2017, only five genuine extortion notes were issued by the outfit. The rest of the fake extortion demands were made by civilians using either ULFA-I or National Democratic Front of Bodoland-S’s name.
