Patil to review security situation in Assam

Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil will begin a two-day visit to Assam on Tuesday to review the security situation in the State.

New Delhi, May 8 : Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil will begin a two-day visit to Assam on Tuesday to review the security situation in the State.

Patil's visit comes in the wake of an increase in violent activities of the banned United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) after the breakdown of Centre's peace initiative with the rebels.

Patil will chair a high-level meeting at Guwahati today and will discuss the security scenario with Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, State Chief Secretary, Director General of Police and senior para-military officials, Army and Intelligence Bureau.

According to a Home Ministry report, the number of incidents had doubled in the first quarter of 2007 against the corresponding period last year and civilian casualties have registered over three-fold increase in the State.

It said ULFA accounted for more than half of the violent incidents in 2006.

The report described the increase in ULFA violence as a "disconcerting development".
