The recent arrest of two active ULFA (I) linkmen, Bolen Deka(35) and Dimbeswar Deka (32) from Borengabari village under Harisinga PS, has revealed that many fresh recruits were made in the Udalguri district by overground workers and linkmen on behalf of the rebel outfit. The apprehension and confessions made by them during their questioning confirmed that three youths of the district who recently went missing were helped by the duo in escorting the recruits to the camps across the Indo-Myanmar border.
