A total of six militants of the banned insurgent group National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) surrendered before police with arms and ammunition yesterday.
According to Deputy Inspector General, Krishnendu Chakraborty, the active militants along the Indo-Bangla border had left their hideout in Bangladesh recently and surrendered. He said militants had deposited two rifles, two grenades, one country-made gun, six live bullets and an extortion notice during the surrender.
He said, the surrendered militants had joined the outfit in 2017 and were imparted training in Bangladesh. Due to the pressure of concerted psychological and physical operations by the police, they were compelled to lay down their arms to lead a normal life, the DIG added.
As many as 36 active NLFT militants have surrendered before the security agencies since 2022.
