One Babul Dihingia is detained by Assam Police in Kakopathar of Tinsukia district with Rs 25 Lakh on Monday, January 11, 2015.
Dihingia – a Linkman of ULFA[I], and near relative of ULFA hardliner faction leader Arunodoy Asom – has not been produced in court by police even after 24 hours have been passed. The family of Dihingia confirmed his abduction to the Times of Assam and stated the probability of the police’s notorious motive to kill him in a fake encounter.
It is known from police sources that Babul Dihingia is under secret custody of district SP Mugdhajyoti Mahanta and Dihingia might get encountered if he doesn’t provide ULFA[I] militants’ location information in Kakopathar.
Babul Dihingia is a resident of Namrup and was arrested three times before for having a relationship with ULFA[I].
Update at 11:35 PM, January 12, 2016:
After the news was published in the Times of Assam, Tinsukia Police admitted that Babul Dihingia has been arrested now and he was kept secret for a counterinsurgency operation.
