A view of the surrender event.

A hardcore cadre of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khango (NSCN-Khango) surrendered in front of the Khonsa Battalion of Assam Rifles in a joint operation with Tirap Police on Friday.

The cadre has been identified as self-styled assistant political officer of NSCN-Khango, Wanghong Ngowa.

He got recruited voluntarily in 2018.

Due to the concerted efforts and relentless pursuit by Khonsa Battalion of Assam Rifles and Tirap Police to convince the active cadres of underground organization to come and join mainstream has paid dividends.

Assam Rifles Company Commander of Khonsa area was proactively involved in convincing the cadres to join the mainstream along with Tirap Police.

The surrender of cadres is likely to motivate other cadres of various groups to join the mainstream in future and further weaken the underground organizations.

Earlier also thirty important insurgent leaders and cadres have shunned the insurgent groups and joined the mainstream giving a big blow to the underground outfits.

This achievement showcases the commitment of Assam Rifles and Tirap Police to ensure peace, normalcy, safe environment in the region.
