AGARTALA: Four Bangladeshi trained extremists of National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) surrendered to the Tripura police on Friday. They also deposited arms and ammunition.
A police official informed that the four NLFT militants have been identified as Doberam Reang (47), Sailendra Reang (22), Sampral Debbarma (46) and Subhalal Tripura (22).
The NLFT cadre, who fled from the Jupui camp under Bagaichari police station of Rangamati district in southeast Bangladesh, during the surrender, have deposited a US made revolver, one improvised gun, a Chinese grenade and some ammunition, incriminating documents and Bangladesh currencies of 800 taka.
During interrogation, the guerrillas have confessed that they joined NLFT (PD faction) in 2019 in the outfit’s Bangladeshi camp along with other extremists.
Most of the members of the NLFT, which in grouping with other militant outfits of the northeastern region setting their hideouts and camps in the neighbouring countries have been demanding a sovereign Tripura, had already deserted the outlawed group and surrendered to the government during the past several years.
