M Batha, along with several other cadres, surrendered following the third Bodo Peace Accord signed in January 2020, but subsequently returned to the forest to form the NLFB.

Batha was previously member of the Bodoland National Democratic Front (NDFB). 
Batha joined the insurgent group in 1996 and was trained in Bhutan. Later, he climbed to become the M’s deputy. 
Batha was dubbed “the bomb specialist” because of his excellent bomb-making and planting skills.
It needs to be mentioned that earlier, the Assam government had announced a special rehabilitation package for the surrendered cadres in the annual fiscal budget.
