DIBRUGARH, Feb 20: Three people were shot dead by suspected Ulta(I) in broad day light at Ledo area in upper Assam Tinsukia district on Monday. The incident took place at Tamolbari between Finviru and Ringrangkhan on the Assam-Arunachal border in Tinsukia district. It was suspected that Ulta(I) militant carried out this attack in revenge against the killing of Ulfa(I) field commander Uday Asom, who was killed by security forces during an encounter. Meanwhile, security forces have launched massive operation against the militant group. "It was not clear why three people were targeted by the militant group," said a source. Sources said the Ulfa(I) militant very easily sneaked in Assam through the jungle route from Myanmar, where they have a base and after doing their activity they fled away through the same route.
