New rebel outfit in Dima Hasao

16 Jun 2014 - 9:57am | Monosh Hojai

About five cadres of disbanded Dimasa militant outfits have floated a new group and launched a massive extortion drive in Haflong and Maibang sub divisions of the troubled Dima Hasao district in Assam. Dima Hasao police have told the government’s home department about the newly floated group and an operation is on to catch the leaders. The outfit — Dima Hasao National Army — has its own letterheads and other items, including two pistols.

The development came to light just a week after another newly floated militant group killed Hamren superintendent of police Nityananda Goswami in an ambush in neighbouring Karbi Anglong district. As alleged, that group too has been formed by disbanded leaders of another militant outfit.

Dima Hasao police on Sunday said the fact came to light during the recent arrest of a Dimasa youth from Topodisa near Haflong, who allegedly attempted to collect money demanded in the name of the new outfit. The police recovered three extortion letters from the arrested youth.

“We have received several complaints from businessmen, government employees and villagers about the fresh extortion drive. Operations are on to catch the leaders behind the new group,” said Dima Hasao superintendent of police B. Rajkhowa. Rajkhowa, however, refused to give details about the present cadre strength of the outfit.
