Meghalaya police Thursday arrested two top rebel leaders of the outlawed National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB), who were the prime accused in the cold blooded murder of 21 people in Assam’s Sonitpur district in November last year.
Haijeng, the ‘commander’ of the NDFB’s Eastern Command in Assam’s Sonitpur district along with three others -- sergeant major, Mwdwi, (western Command) and two “corporals” Nwajar and Mukul Boro were arrested from Byrnihat at the Assam-Meghalaya border.
The two other militants arrested are said to be sympathizers of the outlawed outfit, police said. “All these militants have sneaked into India from Bangladesh. The police have seized mobile phones and demand notes of the NDFB from their possession,” Superintendent of Police Ri-Bhoi district, Claudia A Lyngwa said.
She said the arrested rebels were the prime accused the in the cold blooded murder of 21 people in Assam’s Sonitpur district and kidnapping of Vilas Warkare, an IFS officer in Arunachal Pradesh last year. Haijeng and his men belong to the anti-talk NDFB faction. They are on a warpath with their violent killings. In November last year, Haijeng and his men killed 21 people and injured many more for the death of one Bodo villager.
