  • Suspected insurgents of the Jewel Gorlosa faction of the Dima Halam Daogah (DHD) stormed Harangajao railway station in Asom on March 24, and gunned down three persons, including two railway workers. Communication networks, including telephone lines, were damaged in the firing1.

    Meanwhile, the Asom Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on March 25 said that so long Bangladesh serves as the haven for militants from the Northeast region; the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) will not come forward for peace talks. Gogoi, however, expressed his Government willingness to facilitate a trip to Bangladesh for anyone who is willing to organize talks with the ULFA leadership2.
