Militant activities have seen a marked increase in Tripura during the past year.

The inspector general of Border Security Force (BSF) Tripura frontier had recently admitted to the increase in militant activities.

The director-general of Tripura police said that due to the increase of unemployment during the lockdown, many youths of the state have ventured into unlawful activities.
