SILCHAR, Nov 13: In a pre-dawn oper­a­tion by secu­rity forces today, 9 Hill Tiger Force (HTF) rebels were arrested from the deep jun­gles around the vil­lage of Arda 20 km from Red­jol of Dima Hasao dis­trict. Accord­ing to a senior police office based at the dis­trict head­quar­ters of Haf­long, there was intel­li­gence input about the move­ment of HTF extrem­ists in the area and the secu­rity forces had accord­ingly chalked out the blue-print to nab them.

The cap­tured rebels included ‘commander-in-chief’, finance sec­re­tary and sergeant major of the out­fit. It was a great suc­cess for the secu­rity forces which, it is believed, would break the back­bone of the group which has been behind series of macabre inci­dents in the hills dis­trict recently when peace and nor­malcy has been fast return­ing much to the peo­ple of the zone. 15 gelatin sticks, 7 SBL guns, 2 pis­tols and 2 grenades were recov­ered from the pos­ses­sion of the extrem­ists, pointed out the police offi­cer. In fact, after the intel­li­gence input, the secu­rity forces had been keep­ing a tab on the move­ment of rebels and accord­ingly laid out the plan to take them into cus­tody.
