Itanagar: Police officials from Arunachal
Pradesh and neighbouring Assam are planning to coordinate with
each other to thwart designs of the anti-talk faction of the
NDFB to carry out subversive activities in the state.
The coordination would help keep tabs on the activities
and movement of the underground elements and prevent their
illegal activities, police said.
Three suspected NDFB cadre wanted by Assam police were
apprehended by a joint police team of both sides in a surprise
raid conducted in Chandranagar area near here on Tuesday last,
the police said.
The rebel cadre have allegedly snatched a licensed 12 bore
SBBL gun and a few live cartridges from Nabam Taring of
Hollongi village and cash from the car of Arunachal Pradesh
Congress Committee (APCC) secretary Byabang Nukh parked at
Satrong Nallah on February 14 last.
While threatening Nukh with dire consequences,
the cadre demanded rupees five lakh for returning the gun,
APCC spokesman Vishal P Nabam said in a statement today.
"The incident is a violation of the bilateral treaty
signed between the Nyishi and Bodo communities a few years
back in Itanagar to maintain peace in the boundary areas and
to stop threats and extortion to Arunachalees by Bodo
militants", Nabam pointed out.
