After the signing of a historic peace agreement with the pro-scribed militant group Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA), the District Magistrate of Dima Hasao, Simanta Kr.

The order prohibits the assembly of five or more persons, organizing any agitational programme such as bandh, rallies, strike, dharnas, demonstration, carrying of lethal weapons, and spreading rumors through social media until further orders.

He announced that all tribal groups who were in the jungle have joined the mainstream, and Assam's Dima Hasao district is now free from militant outfits and terrorist activities. The agreement brings a 500 crore package for the development of the Autonomous Council.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma also spoke at the occasion and said that the DNLA was a militant organization that had been demanding Independent Dimasa Nation. After an agreement with the Indian Government and discussions, they made a ceasefire. DNLA cadres have joined the mainstream and left violence.
