Assam Police Alerts Oil India Limited of Possible Attack by ULFA (I)


The Oil India Limited (OIL) has been warned by the Assam Police about possible attacks on its installations in the state & abduction of its officials by the proscribed militant group – United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent (ULFA-I).

In a letter to the General Manager (Security) of OIL at its field headquarters in Duliajan, the Dibrugarh Superintendent of Police has asked to sensitise its officials and employees about the possible threat by the banned militant outfit.

The letter said that “reliable intelligence input” indicated that ULFA(I) and its supporters are planning to carry out “subversive activities” in Dibrugarh.

“They may kidnap/target men from oil installations for their vested interest,” the letter, dated February 22, said and asked OIL to alert the security components deployed at the vital installations and vulnerable strategic locations till February 28.

“Further, you are requested to augment the security of the oil rigs/workover rigs by deploying armed security guards where unarmed local security guards are presently manning,” the SP said.

The alert also suggested joint security and mobile patrolling with local police at frequent intervals to “neutralise such nefarious designs” of the outfit.

Reacting strongly to the Assam Police warning, the ULFA(I) publicity department member Rumel Asom said in a statement that the outfit does not have any such plan against OIL.

He alleged that the entire development is a result of the “vested interest” of a few top officials of Assam Police and “financial irregularities” by them are behind issuing the alert letter to the company.
