The cadres were returning after completing their training in the camp in Myanmar, Lt. Col. A.P. Khongsai told the news agency IANS. He said the Government had intelligence that a group of terrorists will venture to cross over to India in order to carry out subversive projects after finishing training in Myanmar.

The terrorists were arrested following a stand-off after they were intercepted. Among other weapons, A-47, A-56 and pistols were recovered from those arrested. The arrested NDFB (S) cadres were identified as: Mani Ram Basumatary, Binaram Narzary, Sulekha Brahma, Sumuriya Narzary, Rajesh Basumatry, Gaodang Mochahary, Rita Swrgary, Rotjona Narzary, and Dillp Narzary.

NDFB (S) is one of the 30 militant outfits operating in the Assam. All Bodo Students Union (ABSU), the student organisation that began in 1967 under the leadership of Upendranath Brahma demanded the inclusion of Bodo as an official language of Assam.

After a long struggle, in 1982 their demand was met, however, Assam accord was signed in 1986 which aimed to protect the rights, culture and language of the “Assamese people”. Miffed by the use of ABSU word “Assamese” which they said undermined their existence, they demanded a separate state called ‘Bodoland’ to be carved out of Assam. The movement which started off peacefully soon became violent.
