Guwahati: Assam Police have been keeping a sharp vigilance on several sectors like oil and tea ahead of the 75 th Independence Day celebrations in view of boycott call by Paresh Baruah led ULFA (Independent).

The militant outfit has returned to its customary boycott call on the occasion of Independence Day this year after a gap of one year. Last year, the outfit for the first time in 40 years, had decided not to call for a boycott on Independence Day. However, it objected to the celebration.

The banned outfit has called for the bandh from midnight of August 14 till 6 pm on August 15.

On Saturday, Assam’s special director general of police (SDGP) GP Singh said, “Usually, they (ULFA-I) targets oil and tea sector and people belonging to linguistic minority communities. State police have reviewed all security measures already.”

Meanwhile, sources added that a group of ULFA (I) ultras might possibly try to enter Tinsukia district in an attempt to strike on or before I-Day celebrations.  Security measures have already being tightened in the district.
