Kalaigaon, November 6: Bulu Nath, a woman in her mid thirties, is living a life of uncertainty after her teenage son went missing around two months back.

As per the Indian Army, Shashank Nath has joined the outlawed United Liberation Front of Asom – Independent (ULFA-I).

“I haven’t seen my son for around two months. Wherever he is …I want him to return home,” said Bulu, as her voice choked while speaking to TIME8.

The family resides in a remote village of Naharbari, 10 kms away from Kalaigaon Police Station under Udalguri district.

Shashank is the youngest in the family and he has two brothers. One of his elder brothers works with the 108 emergency ambulance services and the other works as a daily wage earner in Guwahati.

“We have been informed that Shashank has joined the ULFA-I. We are in shock…we are not able to believe this…we just want him to return home. Our doors are always open for him,” said Madan Nath, father of Shashank.

Shashank was pursuing Higher Secondary education at a junior college in Tangla.

It may be mentioned that in October, the news of Pankaj Pratim Dutta, vice president of AASU, Dergaon unit joining the ULFA-I has already triggered a sensation among the people.

A missing report has been lodged at the Kalaigaon Police Station.
