Are Ghost Peppers Actually Used in Indian Cooking?

I'm wondering if the people of Assam--the native region of the bhut jolokia--actually use these peppers in their cuisine. I know they are used as elephant repellent (seriously), but have not heard of them actually being used in the native cooking. I almost think that with the pepperhead craze in the US, you'd be more likely to encounter the ghost pepper in an Indian resto in the States than you would if you ate in India itself.
