Guwahati, Nov 19 (UNI) The deputy commander of ULFA's 'B Company' Ram Singh, alias Mintu Borgohain, who had eluded the security forces since years, was arrested during a joint operation by the Army and police in Upper Assam's Sivasagar district early today.

Singh, one of the most wanted ULFA leaders, was arrested from the Jablating area along with his wife Junti and four-month old son Himangshu. A pistol, some bullets and incriminating documents were seized from his possession, police said.

Trained in Myanmar and Kaching, Singh had joined the ULFA 20 years back and was involved in a number of sabotage strikes in the state, particularly in Upper Assam.

After the ULFA's 'A' and 'C' company declared a unilateral ceasefire, Singh continued to his allegiance to the 'B' Company led by Sujit Mohan.

However, ULFA leadership did not give him any significant position after the entire '28 battalion' was reconstituted after the desertion of two of its companies.
