Two separatist rebels of the Liberation A'chik Elite Force (LAEF) surrendered along with huge cache of ammunition in Meghalaya, police said Sunday. Arjun Momin and Kote Ch Marak, the ultras gave up their armed struggle for a separate A'chik state in Western part of Meghalaya before Sylvester Nongtynger, the police chief of East Garo Hills district.
"The duo surrendered due to ongoing counter-insurgency operations in Garo Hills region," Nongtynger said. Further, both the ultras were trained by rebels of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K) and the huge cache of ammunitions deposited by them include - 418 numbers of G-4, 109 numbers of MMG, 10 numbers of 7.62 and one hand grenade.
The duo, however, said that the arms were with James Sangma, a senior NSCN (K) trainer in Nagaland.
The LAEF, which operates in the Garo Hills regions, maintains close links with other rebels groups in the northeast including the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) and the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB).
