Tezpur: Four women cadres of the anti-talk faction NDFB (R) were arrested and over Rs 12 lakh cash was recovered from their possession in lower Assam`s Sonitpur district, official sources said.
The four, along with a two-year-old child, were apprehended last night at the State Transport Corporation bus stop in Tezpur by a police team when the insurgents were
planning to cross over to Myanmar via Nagaland, they said.
Police recovered from them Rs 12.16 lakh cash, believed to be extortion money, besides the letters of NDFB (National Democratic Front of Bodoland) Ranjan Daimary `3rd battalion` faction.
The seized documents include six letters of NDFB `Vice-chairman` G Risikhang about the battalion`s resolutions taken on May 10 and June 17 to carry bomb blasts on major
bridges and vital installations in Assam, besides proposals for sending certain NDFB ultras to Myanmar, the sources said.
A mobile phone was also recovered containing numbers of senior NDFB members and the banned outfit`s headquarters in different parts of Assam.
The women were to proceed on to Myanmar via bordering Mao district of Nagaland to hand over the money to yet unidentified persons for supplying arms, ammunition and
explosives, they said.
The four were identified as Usha Ramchiary (18) of Kathalguri at Silapathar in Dhemaji district, Urmila Gayari (25) of Allaisree in Udalguri district and the other two from
Sonitpur district`s Dhekiajuli are Aruna Basumatary (18) of Jiajuli and Mina Basumatary (25) of Batasipur.
Aruna Basumatary is the mother of the minor child, the sources said.
Their interrogation was on and investigations are continuing.
