AGARTALA: A senior commander of the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT), a nationalist militant organisation, on Tuesday surrendered before the Border Security Force (BSF) in Tripura.
Commander Rana Bahadur Debbarma alias Roaja alias Hemchang (51) is an active and listed NLFT (BM) member. He claims to be holding the rank of self-styled captain in the outfit.
Debbarma reportedly joined the NLFT (BM) Outfit in 1995 and has been continuing to be its active member since then.
Support our brand of fearless and investigative journalism:
The BSF mentioned that Debbarma had not seen any of his family members including his parents since he joined the NLFT outfit in 1995.
However, the force said, Debbarma has opted for his "GHAR WAPSI" (return home) on Tuesday and got an opportunity to meet his younger brother and elder sister, after more than 25 years.
BSF Tripura is making persistent counter insurgency endeavours independently as well as with active support of state security apparatus and central government agencies against the 'Indian Insurgent Groups' active in the state.
Resultantly, the active Cadres of such insurgent groups, particularly of 'NLFT (BM) Outfit' are becoming disillusioned from the insurgency activities and showing their intention to join the mainstream.
Earlier on October 18, one such listed and active NLFT (BM) Cadre namely Jaiba Kaloi alias Litan Jamatia alias Chalai surrendered before the BSF.
