Dispur is awaiting a nod from New Delhi to respond to a ceasefire offer from the Jewel Gorlosa group of the Dima Halam Daogah (DHD) after it put a temporary halt to all counter-insurgency operations in North Cachar Hills district, reports Telegraph India. A senior home department official said the state government had already forwarded the outfit’s proposal to the Centre for its perusal. Dispur forwarded the proposal to the Centre after it was satisfied with the intention of the group to come for a ceasefire by agreeing to stay in designated camps and deposit arms after truce. “The outfit has not yet rejected the proposal and it has been maintaining peace since June. So we have asked the Centre to consider its proposal. We are expecting a communiqué from New Delhi soon,” said the official. The DHD (J) offered a ceasefire in May this year after a “secret meeting” with the inspector-general of police (special branch) Khagen Sarma. But the same month it withdrew the truce claiming that security forces had attacked one of its camps. After going on a killing spree for a few days, the outfit again declared a unilateral truce and has since been keeping peace. The government from this month also put a halt to all the counter-insurgency operations in the district to facilitate the process.
