The ULFA also works closely with other militant outfits in the northeast including the NSCN (Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland and the KIA in Myanmar. Recently, officials in Dhaka had confirmed a meeting between deposed Pak President Pervez Musharraf and ULFA's Anup Chetia during the former's visit to Bangladesh in 2002.
The organisation, which claimed responsibility for bombings of economic targets like crude oil pipelines, freight trains and government buildings during the past decade, was known to be involved in several murders too. Here is a list of some of their more recent activities:
In May 1990, the ULFA killed Surendra Paul, brother of UK-based businessman Lord Swraj Paul, an attack that in many ways precipitated the launch of "Operation Bajrang". A year later, a Russian engineer was abducted and killed. In 1997, social activist Sanjay Ghose met the same fate. During that period, ULFA also made attempts on the then CM Prafulla Kumar Mahanta.
In 1997, the administration dug up a mass grave at an ULFA camp in Lakhipathar that proved executions by the banned organisation. In 2003, the ULFA was accused of massacring migrant labourers from Bihar while a year later they triggered a blast on Independence Day that left 15 people dead. The attacks on migrants resumed in January 2007 when the ULFA killed more than 60 Bihari labourers.
India's biggest enemy is all the political parties. most them dont know anything beyond their local politics of land and farmers. they are not aware border issues and how to deal with them
For example, how do we then Expect UNSC permanent seat? Because GDP growth is highest among Asia countries ? why dont india achieve something , i mean it something in field of science or commerce and then gain respect for our inteliigence. Countries like ISRAEL have gained a string foothold in USA in areas of telecommunication, quantum computing and even in the more commercial areas like business analytics and also, they are one of the best security forces trsined to pre empt any terrorist attack.
It is time we did the same as a country. instead of campaining for UNSC.

i am refreshed seeing your realisation
thanks for links
people like you will save this world from all
Whenever any sort of news LIKE THESE publishes, almost all news are full of comments against Islam...... it so funny that at first no one will realize why some culprits are against Islam? What they will gain if they write against Islam?
But media & net is so dominated (thanks indeed) that it is very easy to find the TRUTH about Islam. There are many websites and videos on net, that talk the TRUTH about Islam. Believe me, only those people are able to read it or watch it who are blessed by Allah and are having great faith in the Almighty (the Unseen Power who runs this world).
Sad news for culprits: The human brain will not accept the rest of non-sense websites and videos, who talks against Islam.
This is the fact. This is Islam's teaching. God bless you all.
What the hell is this????

Any fair human being in this worls will protest against army attack on schools whether it is religious or not. As this was religious, a few people with Muslim caps are doing it. They are not burning human beings. Just a flag. The reports projects a perception that these people are commiting a bigger crime that what army did. !!!! My reporter friends, please be fair in your news... Always do not run after partial news..
