Four hundred fifty KLNLF guerillas in combat gear came out of their campsites at Langlakso, considered as the garrison of this armed Karbi radical group, and walked through the main streets of Dokmoka town before heading towards Diphu, their final destination of the arms decommissioning ceremony.
The cadres were accorded warm welcome at different places by well-wishers, relatives and friends. The KLNLF members were guided to the Polytechnic centre, Diphu where they will be temporarily residing up to February 11 for the arms decommissioning ceremony, and later shifted to respective designated camps.
Upon their arrival at 12:30 pm Sunday afternoon they were felicitated in traditional Karbi fashion by Karbi Students’ Association, KCS etc. for returning to the mainstream society, by rejecting hostility and subversive activities. Women members of the KLNLF were seen anxiously waiting to resume normal life.
The cadres were rushed to Diphu amid tight security in requisitioned vehicles arranged by the district administration.
Meanwhile, brisk activity is taking place at Karbi Anglong Sports Association ground, Diphu, where the all important KLNLF’s arms decommissioning will take place.
