A joint team of the Indian Army and the Assam Police arrested an alleged insurgent in the Charaideo district of Assam Saturday.

Speaking to, a senior official of the Assam Police said the ultra was apprehended with one 7.65 mm pistol, three live rounds of ammunition, and a magazine. The extremist was later handed over to the Assam Police for further investigation.

While sources said the arrested ultra might be associated with the outlawed United Liberation Front of Asom-I (ULFA-I), the police claimed they haven’t got sufficient proof yet to corroborate the ULFA-I angle.

“We are investigating the case. We produced him in court with a plea for police remand. Further investigation will continue and if there is any concrete evidence about any outfit, we shall inform later,” a police official, who did not wish to be named, said.
