Agartala, May 16 : Five militants belonging to different outfits have laid down their arms before the Tripura police, after fleeing their camps in Bangladesh.

The ultras belonged to banned National Liberation Front of Twipra (NLFT) Biswamohan faction and All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF).

The first group of four NLFT cadres surrendered on Tuesday before the Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Ganadacherra in remote Dhalai District, 160 km southeast from here.

The militants, including a woman cadre, said they came from the Khagracherri base camp in Bangladesh.

They were identified as Amrit Sadhan Jamatia (29), Nakhtra Jamatia (33), Dipak Debbarma (26) and his wife Purnia Tripura (20).

The group handed over 36 Chinese grenades, a revolver and huge quantity of ammunitions to the police.

Later in a separate incident, a militant of the ATTF group surrendered before the SDPO Teliamura in West Tripura District.

The militant, Kripesh Debbarma (22), a self-styled Lance Corporal, had fled Satcheri camp in Bangladesh.

After surrendering, the militants said most of them were forced to join the false arms struggle for an independent Tripura for the tribal.

They also informed that lately, due to the round the clock operation by the security forces, movement in the jungle became very tough, leaving them with no other option but to surrender.

They hinted that many more cadres, who have been leading a hard underground life and were disillusioned with the activates of their top rung leaders, who lead a luxurious life in different cities of Bangladesh, including Dhaka, were waiting for the right time to surrender.

Tripura is one of India's northeastern mountainous states where two major outlawed rebel groups - National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) and All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF) are fighting for independent tribal homelands and are believed to be operating from adjoining Bangladesh, which Dhaka denies.
