About United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA)

The ULFA is believed to be split into two parts - the 'Pro-talk' group which declared a unilateral ceasefire with the government and the 'Anti-talk'.

Experts believe that with declining support and lack of funds, ULFA has resorted to violent activities like killings and extortions to make its presence felt. Over 20,000 people are feared to have been killed so far in the ULFA insurgency.
