India using GPS map to track ULFA chief

New Delhi, India: India’s Intelligence Bureau is using modern satellite technologies in its quest to hunt down Paresh Baruah, who is heading the hardliner group of United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), Times of Assam reported. According to the report, the Bureau with the use of GPS has prepared a satellite map of Taka, a jungle area in the border of China-Myanmar.

Paresh Baruah is presently believed to be in that area. The place is a convenient area for Baruah and his group as being close to China, on the hint of any danger can regularly alter their bases between Myanmar and China.

Recently a 14-member Indian delegation led by Shambhu Singh, Joint Secretary (North East), Ministry of Home Affairs and representatives from Manipur Government and official from the Government of Myanmar held a meeting at Kalewa, about 50 kms from Moreh, Myanmar. The prime issue discussed in the meeting though was about the border fencing at Moreh in Manipur’s Chandel district, but reportedly the issue of Baruah’s expulsion from the Burmese soil could also have been discussed; details though are not revealed to the media.

If the issue was raised in the meeting, then there is every possibility that the Indian Government pressurised the Government of Myanmar to take immediate action against the ULFA camps in their soil. The satellite maps then come handy for the Myanmar Army, who has been shooting down ULFA cadres since the 1980s. The possible all around attack of the Myanmar Army will leave Paresh Baruah with no other option then to flee towards China and once in China, Baruah will be trapped completely as his entry and exit to Myanmar will become impossible.
