Ten hardcore arm trained KLNLF (Karbi Longri NC Hills Liberation Front) cadres joined UPDS (United Peoples Democratic Solidarity) Wednesday at its liaison office, Diphu town.
The cadres were formally welcomed to join the UPDS by the defense secretary of the organization.
The cadres deserted the Diphu designated camp of the KLNLF to take refuge in the UPDS camp, who is presently maintaining ceasefire with government of India.
Lens corporal Nihang Engti, who holds the identity card issued by Assam police said that “after the 11th February 2010 ceremonies laying down of arms by the KLNLF we were made to understand that we have not surrendered totally but now we know that we have not entered into ceasefire agreement like UPDS, we expected good behavior in designated camp but we have been ill treated on flimsy ground, we think UPDS will treat us better, we fled from the KLNLF camp secretly to take shelter in the UPDS camp”.
Few teenaged cadres who joined KLNLF in 2009 said they received training how to use sophisticated arms and ammunition along with other assorted weapon. It may be mentioned that this is not first occasion when defectors of KLNLF joined the UPDS.
Earlier, five well trained cadres of KLNLF came in the fold of UPDS on July 10, 2010 and the defection was defended by the KLNLF by stating the cadres did not desert the organization rather they were ousted for several reason.
However, with regard to Wednesday’s defection, the KLNLF authority could not be contacted.
On February 11 some 419 armed cadres of KLNLF entered in to peace agreement with government, which according to the KLNLF was the total number of cadre nevertheless local police believe that a small group of KLNLF militants are still holed up inside the forest without surrendering.
The militants who joined UPDS Wednesday are L.c. Nihang Engti, Cpl. Sengkan Bey, Sar-Im Bey, Chomang Timung, Den Taro, Abin Rongpi, Kongke Timung, Leo Teron, Kongkang Engleng, Sgt. Kloklar Timung.
