Suspected rebels went on a rampage in Daduki village near Maibang in Assam this evening and torched 30 houses, even as the militant outfit DHD (J) or ‘Black Widow’ declared a three-month long unilateral ceasefire Saturday night and the Centre appearing not in a hurry to respond to the truce call. ‘’We are yet to ascertain the ultra’s outfit involved in the incident. We are yet to know whether Zeme Naga or Dimasa militants are responsible behind the attacks,’’ official sources said. The Black Widow’s call for a unilateral ceasefire was announced by David Dimasa, one of the top leaders of the outfit. Sources informed that the Centre was unlikely to respond to the three-month long ceasefire, declared by the Black Widow as it was suspected to be a ploy by the ultras to regroup themselves. ‘’This is rubbish. Every time the ultras are under pressure, they declare cease fire. This time, it will be a fight to finish,’’ a senior police official said. ‘’’’There is no hurry … but it is unlikely that the government will respond to their call for a unilateral ceasefire. The operation is complete now,’’ a senior official of Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi’s entourage, which is currently touring New Delhi, said. The Government is sitting tight even 72 hours after the declaration of the ceasefire by David Dimasa, one of the top leaders of the terrorist group at large said. Meanwhile, the local court gave the National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody of the terrorist group chief Jewel Garlosa and his accomplice. The NIA has been interrogating Jewel Garlosa, chairman of militant group, Mohit Hojai, local politician and R H Khan, a bureaucrat who diverted the government funds to an undisclosed location. This is for the first time the NIA Act has come into effect as the investigation agency is probing into the broader contour of terrorism in the NC Hills as its linkage across South East Asia. The security operation was further intensified and the DGP said they would not stop till the district was cleared of the militants, reported UNI. The Black Widow terrorists had been using the ceasefire game in the past for regrouping. and according to information available, the Union Home Ministry might not respond to the ceasefire offer.
