ULFA’s Military Spokesperson Major Raju Baruah alias Hitesh Kalita gets bail from the case of attack on Congress leader Bhumidhar Barman in December 30, 1995. The Deputy C-in-C gets the bail granted from the CBI court of Gauhati High Court today.

Baruah will be moving out from Gauhati Central Jail tomorrow to his home at Bahjani village of Nalbari district. Source of the outfit confirms about his move to Times of Assam.

It should be mentioned that on December 30, 1995, a dreaded attack was launched by a group of suspected ULFA fellows on the then Health Minister Bhumidhar Barman’s convoy near Jagra of Nalbari district. In that attack, the driver & security personnel were killed, but Mr Barman escaped from the same Ambassador on which the attack was launched. The police commandos and security personals of Mr Barman’s convoy weren’t able to defend the attack of the suspected ULFA group by any scope, though Mr Barman escaped unhurt. Later on, that case was handed over to CBI for investigation where the Bureau listed Raju Baruah involved with that attack.
