Guwahati, Nov 11 (UNI) NDFB's designated camps have been placed under strict security vigil as suspicion mounted over the outfit's role in orchestrating the 30/10 Assam serial blasts.
Security personnel have been deployed in large numbers at the NDFB's designated camp in Baksa district since last night, with security forces also reportedly constructing bunkers indicating a prolonged stay.
It has been reported that terror suspects who planted the bombs are taking shelter in the camps, though no confirmation has been received.
Police, however, maintained that the increased security presence was ordered to ensure that the cease fire ground rules were strictly adhered to.
The National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) has been in cease fire with the government since 2005 and its truce agreement would come up for renewal next month.
An Unified Command, spearheading counter-insurgency operations in the state, meeting yesterday had reviewed violation of cease fire terms and conditions by militant organisations and resolved for strict enforcement of the ground rules.
Though the police refused to comment on possible links between the blasts and NDFB, it has been suspected that the Bodo group had provided logistic support to fundamentalist organisations that planned the attacks.
The extent of role of the NDFB or ULFA, both suspected to have been involved in executing the blasts, has not been ascertained yet, with investigating agencies refusing to divulge details.
