Guwahati: Security through out Assam has been tightened on the occasion of Ulfa’s protest day today as the anti-talk faction of the organisation pledged to continue with their struggle.
The security has been beefed up at all vital installations including oil and gas pipelines, bridges, railway lines and other vulnerable areas, official sources said in Guwahati.
Patrolling has been intensified in sensitive areas with vehicles being thoroughly checked along the highways as well as at the entry and exit of all towns and cities.
