Cheap warning from ULFA. Nobody takes notice nowadays.

But, every now and then someone has to die for the Central Govt to remember that issues remain unsolved, even after decades. Pathetic condition fuelled by inactive actions by the GoI to settle the issue.

In any case, Assam is much better than what it was 10 years ago.

Such cases need dedicated police work and upgradation of local policing infrastructure.

There is complex political, economical and social environment in North East. Politically it is difficult to predict who is supporting whom. Both Central and state government used the militants for there political gain, then problem among different ethnic groups supported by governments and militants together, complete destruction of demography due to large scale influx from Bangladesh after 71,complete negligence of North East by national media are some of the reason. Rather than the four oil refineries in Assam, there is hardly any major industry in whole North East. Th Bogibeel bridge over Brahmaputra will may take another 10 years to complete after work starts 10 years ago.
Government is happy keeping North East as it is. Keep fighting and killing each other.
