Guwahati: The banned outfit of ULFA (Independent) on Wednesday has denied of running any recruitment drive via social media.

The statement from the outfit came a day after four youths from Tinsukia were nabbed by security forces on Tuesday while they were allegedly on their way to join the militant outfit.

ULFA (I)’s media cell member Rumel Asom in a statement alleged that state police and other forces have been creating fake facebook accounts in the name of the outfit and luring unemployed youths to join the group.

“We have received inputs that many people from media, police forces, youth organization in connivance have been falsely recruiting these youths and then showing them arrested for their vested interest. ULFA (I) wants to clear that the outfit is not running any recruitment drive via social media,” the statement said.

The militant outfit alleged that it was a conspiracy to malign ULFA (I)’s image and to gain ‘promotion’ of several police and security officials.

The statement added, “If such conspiracy continues then ULFA (I) will launch armed strike against those involved in the act. We have already identified them.”

In November also, Assam Rifles apprehended three youths from Assam while they were allegedly heading to join the militant outfit in Mon district of Nagaland.

ULFA (I) has been on a unilateral ceasefire since May last year. The outfit’s chief Paresh Baruah said the decision to continue the ceasefire has been taken for the “cause of public good”.
