After a two day long Operation, an Army team succeed in neutralising a Self Styled Sergeant Major Rongmon Asom @ Mecuri of ULFA (I) in Talpathar village of Tinsukia district of Assam on 27th April, 2016.
The operation was launched on 25th April, 2016, on the basis of a specific information regarding the movement of Self Styled ULFA (I) Sergeant Major Rongmon Asom @ Mecuri.
An AK-81 assault rifle along with a magazine and some other items were recovered from the spot. A thorough search operation is currently in progress.
the Self Styled Sergeant Major Rongmon Asom @ Mecuri was a dreaded senior ULFA(I) leader who led a group of terrorists and was active in upper Assam for a long time. He was actively involved in killing/extortion activities in the area.
His neutralization is a serious blow to the dwindling morale of ULFA (I) and will severely dent their resurgence effort.
