Dibrugarh (Assam) [India], Nov 4 (ANI): A Trinamool Congress (TMC) delegation led by party leader Derek O'Brien arrived in Dibrugarh district on Sunday, and is on their way to Tinsukhia to meet families of the five people who were killed by United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) terrorists.
The delegation includes TMC Lok Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) Mamata Bala Thakur, Rajya Sabha legislator Nadimul Haq and Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) Mahua Moitra arrived at Dibrugarh.
The deceased, identified as Ananta Namasudra, Abinash Namasudra, Subal Das, Dhanai Namasudra and Syamal Biswas from the Bengali community, were killed at around 7 pm on November 1 in Bishnoimukh village near Dhola-Sadiya Bridge.
State Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had condemned the attack and directed law enforcement agencies to take stringent action against the culprits.
The ULFA is a separatist outfit operating in North-East India for the indigenous Assamese people. Their main aim is to establish a sovereign Assam with an armed struggle.
The central government had banned ULFA in 1990 citing it as a terrorist organisation, while the United States Department of State lists it under "other groups of concern." (ANI)
