    Eight border guards killed by rebels in India

    Mar. 15 2011


    New Delhi - At least eight border guards were killed while five political activists were injured in separate attacks by secessionist rebels in India's north-eastern state of Assam, police said Tuesday.

    The militants struck twice on Monday night in the restive state which is gearing up for local elections scheduled early next month.

    Soldiers from the Border Security Force (BSF) were returning from a patrol when they were ambushed by suspected National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) militants in the Ultapani forests bordering Bhutan.

    'Three BSF men were killed at the scene while five succumbed to injuries on way to the hospital,' district police official Hemanta Kumar Das said over the telephone.

    Nine BSF men who were injured in the attack were admitted to a hospital in Kokrajhar, 220 kilometres west of state capital Guwahati.

    Hours earlier, militants from the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) carried out a bombing at the ruling Congress party office in Guwahati that left five Congress activists injured.

    An ULFA faction which is opposed to peace talks with the Indian government claimed responsibility for the attack, the PTI news agency reported. Senior ULFA leaders recently held the first round of peace talks with officials in New Delhi.

    Both the NDFB and the ULFA have been fighting for independent homelands outside the Indian union.

    Five major separatist and tribal groups are active in Assam. More than 6,500 people have been killed there in insurgency-related violence since 2002.

    In the interior of Assam?

    What the hell is happening in NE? since my childhood i am hearing only about those bllody bastards ambushing our soldiers and killling them and taking away their arms and got vanished into dense forests like demons...nothing much is heard about our men doing anything...why army is reluctant to set up a guerilla force in the lines of the rashtriya rifles and instill fear of death in the minds of those rotten scums ....It is clear that regular paramilitary and army units couldnt do much to contain those barbarians..but we have to set up a elite force trained in jungle warfare and experised in setting up ambushes against guerillas which have to be operated in small units....such force should contain local youth who would be helpful as in the form of sporters or trackers...
