They were arrested by Tinsukia police with the help of CRPF and local army unit 7 Madras during an operation.
According to sources, the arrested persons were involved in extortion activities in various pockets of the district and had extended support to the outlawed ULFA outfit in carrying out sabotage and other forms of anti-people and crimil activities to establish their rule of terror among the common people.
Meanwhile, talking to The Sentinel, And Prakash Tiwari, Tinsukia SP, said that the linkmen had recently gone to Moon district in galand near the Myanmar border to handover illegally procured booty to Arunoday Dohotia alias Bijit Gogoi.
