Railways Finally Fires ULFA Leader Paresh Barua

The Railways has finally sacked Paresh Barua, the commander-in-chief of the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA), who joined Northeast Frontier Railways (NFR) as a porter in 1978 and disappeared a few months later.

Following an inquiry into Barua’s absence from work for over 30 years, the NFR on Thursday gave directives to strike Baruah’s name off the Railways’ rolls.

It may be mentioned that the reports regarding Barua’s sacking appeared in media last month.

“An order stating Barua’s removal from service has been issued on Thursday. It has been put up on the notice board at the Tinsukia railway station,” a senior NFR official said.

Barua’s official removal from Railways followed a thorough process in which the NFR first set dates for two hearings and then waited for two weeks for anybody to claim the post. With nobody turning up for the hearings and during the notice period, the decks were finally cleared for Barua’s dismissal.
