Oil India Ltd (OIL) and ONGC have been issued an advisory by the Assam Police regarding possible ULFA(I) militant activities on their installations and employees in the state, officials said on Thursday.
A series of “do and don’ts” have already been issued for PSU energy majors following meetings with various agencies, such as CISF and AISF.
The ULFA sent a telephonic warning to Oil India officials about possible strikes, including kidnappings, at the company’s facilities, according to a senior Assam Police official who spoke to PTI (I).
“Many of the areas where oil rigs are situated become impassable during the monsoon season. As a result, we inform the companies of the importance of security. This happens on a regular basis and isn’t unusual “
Then he said nothing more.
“Some intelligence input” from the police was received earlier this week, Tridiv Hazarika, OIL’s spokesperson in Duliajan, told PTI when contacted.
“The Resident Chief Executive In-Charge immediately convened an internal meeting, which was chaired by him. CISF, AISF OIL Security, and other departments were represented at the meeting ,” It was his opinion.
Employees and officers were instructed to become more aware of security concerns at the meeting, according to Hazarika.
