Agartala: Four insurgents of the outlawed National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) have surrendered to Assam Rifles at Taidum in North Tripura district and deposited arms, police said on Tuesday.

The ultras surrendered to Assam Rifles yesterday during a search at Taidum, a remote and hill top tribal hamlet in Kanchanpur sub-division of the district neighbouring Mizoram.

They deposited one AK-56 rifle, one SLR, one G-3 rifle, one 9 mm pistol and many live cartridges.

During interrogation, the ultras said they fled from their base camp in Chittagong Hill Tract of Bangladesh following search operation by the security forces there.

They said food and money crisis gripped the camp inmates as the leaders were not paying salary to the cadre for a long time.

Eight insurgents of the same group were arrested by Assam Rifles on December 25 from Hamshapara in the Sub-division.

Altogether 365 insurgents of various outfits in the state have surrendered to security forces last year.
