Guwahati, Oct 8: Separatist groups like the outlawed National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) and United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA)in Assam are outsourcing terror by hiring students to carry out kidnappings and seek ransom to fund militant activities, said Assam police.

Sources said that the disturbing trend is that most abduction were carried out by youths, some of them just of out of their teens and studying in colleges and they are promised with big money.

Further reports said for the past weeks many young boys were kidnapped from Dhekiajuli in northern Assam by the armed militants.

"The need of the hour is proper parenting. The society at large should respond to such evil designs." police Inspector General Pallab Bhattacharya said.

“Using vulnerable youths to execute terror designs seem to be the latest modus operandi of militant groups," another police officer said.
