Inflicting yet another significant blow to IK Songbijit led Peoples’ Democratic Council of Karbi Longri (PDCK), the Karbi Anglong police nabbed another hardcore cadre of the outfit in a successful operation in East Karbi Anglong on Sunday.

As per reports, based on a specific information, Karbi Anglong police and army launched a joint operation in the general area of Chaukihala and arrested Bonnet Terong aka Denja from a hideout. Denja is reportedly the self styled Sergeant Major of PDCK. Several warlike items including suspected IED, detonators and batteries have been recovered from his possession.

The arrest comes as another setback to Sogbijit-led PDCK who tried to cash in the vacuum created by the disintegration of Karbi Peoples’ Liberation Tiger (KPLT) in the hill district of Karbi Anglong. Some of the disgruntled KPLT sided with IK Songbinit, the former Bodo militant leader to form PDCK in an undisclosed location on October 27, 2016. IK Songbijit, who remained cornered amongst the Bodo people after the BTAD massacre, 2014 was looking for alliances and took it as an opportunity to keep up the arm struggle. However, his plans failed as most of the outfits members were arrested by security forces.

A couple of weeks back, the Karbi Anglong police arrested four cadres of PDCK including former self-styled army chief and present home secretary Francis Terang aka David Mukrang, self-styled Sergent Naman Rishi Rengma aka Akhevi Rengma and two new recruits from a hideout under Dolamora police station in East Karbi Anglong.

Earlier in February, 2019, another hardcore cadre of PDCK Welson Terang aka Mongwe Terang was arrested by Karbi Anglong police from Barlangfer area in Karbi Anglong-Hojai border. Welson was a former associated KPLT and was arrested twice in 2013 and 2015 respectively.
