Diphu, April 24, 2020:

Two Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA) militants were shot dead earlier today at Dugoidisa village in Misibailam under the Dhansiri police outpost in Karbi Anglong district of Assam.

The two ultras were reportedly killed during crossfiring with police personnel. The slain cadres have been identified as Gadayeng Dimasa alias Rupson Thousan and Elwin Jigdung. They were both residents of Karbi Anglong district. An M-16 and an AK-47 assault rifle have been recovered from the cadres.

Another DNLA cadre, a certain Devlin Hojai of Doyapur, managed to flee from the site, sources said.

It is pertinent to mention here that in January last, Assam Police arrested the militant outfit, Dimasa National Liberation Army’s (DNLA) Chief Minom Phunglosha, also known as Gazaw Dimasa from Karbi Anglong.

Assam Police, after arresting him, took to Twitter and posted, “In a major success, a joint team of @karbianglongpol & @adgpi personnel apprehended Minom Phunglosha alias Gazaw Dimasa, the self-styled Army Chief of DNLA and recovered a pistol from him.”

It may be recalled that the rebel outfit was formed last year ahead of the General Elections.
