GUWAHATI: The disarrayed militants of the Northeast in Myanmar, including members of the ULFA (United Liberation Front of Assam) and the NDFB-S (National Democratic Front of Boroland-S), have been expressing their willingness to surrender.
According to sources in the State police force, the militants of the Northeast camping in Myanmar have been disarrayed after the recent crackdown on them by the Myanmarese Army. With most of the militants’ camps under the occupation of Myanmarese Army, most of the rebels have been on the run, the sources said.
The fleeing militants, according to sources, have been badly affected by the scarcity of food. Even if they can escape the wrath of Myanmarese Army, sources said, they cannot escape the hunger pangs. Sources also claim that a number of militants are willing to lay down arms and are keeping in touch with the security personnel. In the past two months, seven ULFA rebels, two NDFB-S militants including its foreign secretary Narzary Evangel Ishara (36) and three KLO rebels surrendered. They deposited two HK Rifles, two AK-47 Rifles, one 9 mm pistol, a Japanese wireless set and around 500 ammunition.
