Two women members of National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB-S) have been arrested from Eastern Assam’s Chirang district.
Army officials said acting on intelligence input about induction of two women cadres of NDFB (S) in Chirang district, a local Army unit along with Assam Police launched a joint operation on Sunday at Budhikhamar area under Panbari police station in Chirang district and nabbed the two women rebels.
The arrested rebels have been identified as Rotima Borgoyary alias B Rwmwi and Juli Basumatary alias B Jiri Jiri.
The lady cadres were being inducted into Chirang from Nagaland, to carry out recruitment of women over ground worker and train them, said an Army official.
Apparently the lady cadres were about to link up with Batha/ Bidai faction of NDFB(S), he said.
The apprehension of these lady cadres has dealt a severe blow to efforts of top NDFB(S) leadership’s plan to revive insurgency in Lower Assam, the official claimed.
