The police on Monday claimed that a group of Jihadis had entered Upper Assam with the help of local extremist organisations to disrupt poll campaign.
The Jihadi ultras had entered Upper Assam through Myanmar and neighbouring Nagaland’s Mon district, Superintendent of Police, Dibrugarh, Abhijeet Bora told PTI.
He claimed that there were ‘specific intelligence inputs´ about the entry of the extremists.
Bora said ULFA’s ‘Bravo´ company had possibly helped the Jihadis to enter the area as the ‘Alpha´ and ‘Charlie´ unit of the outfit were on ceasefire.
The police, he said, have started search operations in suspected militant hideouts to find out the jihadis.
