ULFA head Paresh Barua was regarded as significant by Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI, which trained a group of ULFA militants from Assam in 1991–1992. Despite it’s reluctance to take over as head of the agency to oversee operations in the northeastern state, they did not want to offend Baruah. A recent book makes this assertion. In ULFA: The Mirage of Dawn, veteran writer Rajeev Bhattacharya chronicles the journey of the outlawed group from its founding in the 1970s to mediating a peace agreement between the Centre and a faction headed by Arvind Rajkhowa. There are now discussions.
Where Is Baruah Right Now?
Currently leading the United Liberation Front of Assam’s (ULFA-Independent) anti-talk group, Baruah is thought to be hiding in China’s Yunnan province. According to the book, three groups of the first 40 ULFA terrorist members received training in Pakistan in 1991–1992. Two groups received training: one in the vicinity of Peshawar, the other in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and the Darra Adam Khel arms market in the Safed Koh Mountains in Pakistan.
What Does The Book Say?
According to what the author indicated, Barua was unwilling to submit to the agency and abide by all of its directives. He abruptly got up during the previous meeting, bid everyone farewell, and departed the location. As stated here, ISI was aware that Barua was a highly significant individual and that he should not be permitted to become enraged. The book also describes how Barua escaped four attempts at his life in Bangladesh. In addition, it has numerous references to Barua’s life’s events.
