Tripura militants still operate 16 camps in Bangladesh: DGP
Agartala: Two banned outfits -- National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) and All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF) -- still have 16 or more hideouts in Bangladesh, state Director General of Police C Balasubramanian said here on Thursday.
Most of these hideouts were concentrated at Chittagong Hill Track (CHT) in the neighbouring country, Balasubramanian told reporters on the eve of `Police Week`.
He said about four to six hideouts were adjacent to the Indo-Bangladesh border while others were far away from it.
The DGP said, "The NLFT headed by Biswamohan Debbarma is still a powerful outfit running around 15/16 hideouts in Bangladesh. One camp is still maintained by the ATTF that too by two women."
Admitting that insurgents were using Tripura-Mizoram- Bangladesh tri-junction as corridor, he said security agencies including Assam Riffles have been trying hard to stop infiltration of militants from across the border.
Asked about security arrangement along the border keeping in mind the recent unrest in Bangladesh, the DGP said the BSF and district police authorities were asked to maintain strict vigil along the border so that militants could not enter into the Indian soil.
