Assam DGP Challenges ULFA-I Amidst Recent Grenade Attacks

Guwahati, December 15: Undeterred by recent grenade attacks claimed by the United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent (ULFA-I), Assam’s Director General of Police (DGP), G.P. Singh, issued a defiant statement, declaring on December 15 that the banned insurgent group is “free to target” him.

In response to ULFA-I’s accusations of treating Assam Police as his “ancestral property,” DGP Singh, residing in Kahilipara, urged the insurgent group not to disturb the people of Assam, emphasizing, “People who love Assam should not disturb the people of Assam.”

ULFA-I claimed responsibility for two recent grenade attacks, including the December 14 incident at the Lichubari Army camp in Jorhat. The outfit’s public letter accused DGP Singh of “arrogance” and criticized his perceived misuse of power.

While the Union home ministry has declared insurgency in Assam to be under control, these attacks underscore the ongoing challenges faced by the state. The situation remains fluid, with the DGP’s direct challenge to ULFA-I adding a new dimension to the existing security concerns in Assam.
