Bid to attack cops foiled, one held with IEDs
SHILLONG: The attempt on the part of the suspected GNLA-ULFA combine to attack the police personnel after the ongoing church function (ABDK SOBHA) in Resubelpara, North Garo Hills was foiled, following the recovery of IEDs and arrest of a person by a joint team of both Assam and Meghalaya police from Goalpara on Wednesday evening.
Police sources said that GNLA area commander Philiport D Shira and Deputy Deputy C-in-C of ULFA Drishti Rajakhowa had a plan to target both Meghalaya and Assam Police personnel by placing powerful remote controlled IEDs in three junctions between Resubelpara and Krishnai on January 26 and also after the church function.
Police came to know about this development at around 12.30 pm on Wednesday when one Pintu Ch Marak, a former ANVC member, who later joined GNLA under Philiport, surrendered before the SP, North Garo Hills without arms.
Based on the revelation of the cadre, one Malsing R Marak was arrested on the outskirts of Resubelpara and three remote controlled IEDs and gelatins sticks were recovered from a house at Kalaring village adjacent to the forest area of Dorenkitip in Assam at around 7:30 pm.
Later, all the IEDs were defused by a bomb disposal team of Meghalaya Police.
