Shillong: The Achik National Volunteer
Council, a Garo militant group under ceasefire, on Monday issued a
`quit notice` to cadres of the ULFA and NDFB who were
operating in Meghalaya`s Garo hills region.
"The NDFB and ULFA cadres operating in Garo hills should
quit the area immediately. They are anti talk factions who are
under direct influence of ISI of Pakistan and are involved in
various attacks in Garo hills in the last couple of months,"
the ANVC said in a statement.
Setting a deadline of 20 days for the groups to quit, the
ANVC charged the two Assam outfits of being involved in the
killing of three policemen and five labourers in Garo hills
and shooting at a traditional head in connivance with another
militant group, the Garo National Liberation Army.
"Even now they are holed up at various places planning
attacks. This will possibly turn Garo Hills into another
Assam, therefore they should immediately leave," the statement
The ANVC has around 175 cadres, now living in three
designated camps. Meghalaya Police say they have not deposited
their entire armoury.
