NEW DELHI, Dec 17: Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) Director General MV Krishna Rao today said ULFA ‘commander-in-chief’ Paresh Baruah has shifted his base to China from Myanmar.
Rao, while addressing SSB’s annual press conference here, said: “ULFA c-in-c Paresh Baruah and some of his colleagues have moved into China’s Yunnan province with the help of his contacts which may be from the People’s Liberation Army.” He also said the chairman of the anti-talk faction of the NDFB, Ranjan Daimary, is believed to be out of Burma.
Replying to a question, Rao said: “Vigilance along the Bhutan border is very tight. We don’t think any ULFA cadres or cadres of other outfits are moving around there.”
Since 2001, the SSB has arrested 6,118 people, including 15 NDFB and 18 illegal infiltrators. The SSB is spread out along Indo-Nepal and Indo-Bhutan borders across the States of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Sikkim, West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. THE SENTINEL
