In a news which was actually exposed by Times of Assam two years ago, one Bangalore-based Assamese retired Indian Air force officer Bikash Kumar Das has been claimed to be the man who is running the fake profile of ULFA C-in-C Paresh Asom alias Paresh Baruah. This claim was made today by the outfit itself in a press release sent to Times of Assam by Joy Asom, member of the outfit’s Central Publicity Wing.
Through the press release, ULFA made it clear that unlike the claims made by Bikash Kumar Das stating that he was close to Paresh Asom (Baruah), he had actually no connection to the outfit whatsoever. The outfit also alleged that this Bikash Kumar Das was probably working for the IB and accused him of betraying the Netizens of his state. ULFA also clarified that they maintain a strict organizational policy of not allowing any leader or cadre to open and maintain accounts in any social networking site.
It is to be mentioned that the same Bikash Kumar Das is an active member in various social networking sites such as Facebook, Orkut and Assamnet. He has been accused, in various social networking communities such as in Orkut, for vulgar and unacceptable words to other members. About two years ago, when Times of Assam was taking shape in Social Networking Site Orkut, this Bikash Kumar Das was exposed by Times of Assam the man behind several such online scams.
