The number of youth falling prey to insurgent activities in the Northeast Indian state of Assam has seen a surge in the recent past and the same does not seem to decline. Moreover with the increasing resentment among youth to oppose the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Bill, the use of force as a method of resentment is something that comes in easy and looks like the only way out.

In yet another incident police has informed that three more youth from Assam have left to join ULFA(I), the banned militant outfit.

Officials informed that Hriday Sarkar from Golakganj in Dhubri district of lower Assam along the border with Bangladesh left his home on January 15 on the occasion of Bhogali Bihu the annual festival of harvest and feasting.

It was also informed that he had gone with two others youth from Dhemaji and Goalpara districts.

Assam and other North East states have seen another spate of protests since Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was passed by Lok Sabha earlier this month.
