HUJI has plans to set up camps in Assam

Guwahati, Ja 31 : Documents recovered from three Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI) ‘link-men’ arrested on Thursday night have revealed that the Bangladesh-based HUJI militant outfit is planning to set up camps in strategic areas of lower Assam.

“Documents recovered from three HUJI ‘link-men’ arrested during seizure of fake currency in Barpeta district on Thursday night unearthed the outfit’s plan to set up bases in strategic areas of lower Assam for subversive activities, sources in the Indian Army said on Friday.

The seizure could be made possible by Indian Army’s Kumaon regiment following a tip off about HUJI ultras in Sapori village in connection with fake currency notes. At least three persons having links with HUJI were arrested by the security personnel along with fake currency and printing machine recovered.

The HUJI, along with the ULFA, is suspected to be involved in recent acts of violence including last year’s serial blasts in the state. (ANI)
