Assam hills on the road to peace

A steady peace process awaits Assam's two hills districts. The DHD(J) known as black widow rebels are surrendering the before the authorities after unleashing several years of violence in North Cachar Hills district. The Karbi Longri National Liberation Front (KLNLF) is also likely to follow the suit. Barring a few top ranked cadres including Niranjan Hojai camping outside, over 250 armed cadres have so far deposited a huge cache of arms and ammunitions before the authorities before being sent to ther designated camps. According to information, the other top cadres camping outside the country would be arriving in a few days as the Centre announced safe passage for these rebels. The surrender process is expected to be completed by September 25.


More than one hundred cadres on Tuesday left for the designated camp at Thanalasa ME School with a huge cache of arms and ammunition inside 8 boxes. This is how, more and more Black Widow cadres are joining the mainstream which began on on Sunday who are keeping at the Redcross Building at Jatinga. The entire process is being led by 2nd lieutenant David Dimasa.


Official sources say, the DHD(J) cadres have so far deposited AK rifle 70, M-16 rifle, 16, pistol 15, M-12 rifle 5, SLR 4, 303 rifle 4 along with 3 US carbine, 3 lathod guns, 3UMG, and a rocket launcher. In yet another development, the KLNLF rebels who have been mongering trouble for the last several years in Karbi Anglong district are contemplating to follow the suit.


According to information, top Karbi rebel leaders are in touch with Assam's top ranked police officers which began very recently in Guwahati. If these so happen, the KLNLFD rebels would also have to completely surrender before the authorities. It may be recalled that the rebel outfit's unilateral ceasefire period will expire on September 30.
