The proscribed outfit’s decision came days after Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma appealed to ULFA (I) chief Paresh Baruah to come forward for peace talks.

“A dialogue with the ULFA is a two-way traffic. Paresh Baruah has to come forward.

Similarly, we have to go to him. If both sides have the will, communication won’t be difficult,” Mr Sarma had said.

Baruah also alleged that a section of officials of the Indian security forces and Assam police have orchestrated a conspiracy to malign the image of ULFA (I).

Two people were killed and two others injured in a grenade blast triggered by suspected militants at Tingrai Bazar under Digboi police station in Tinsukia district on Friday. ULFA (I) has denied its involvement in the attack.
