AGARTALA, March 30 (TIWN): Wire fencing along the Indo-Bangla border at Khowai Vidyabil under Champahaor Police Station was found cut recently ahead of the Tripura Tribal Areas & Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) election. In this regard the police today said there was information that the famed NLFT militant Pakhi Tripura along with 5 to 6 surrendered NLFT militants held a meeting on March 27, the day after the wire fence along the bordering area under Khowai was found cut. The police also said that the tribal youths involved with the banned militant outfit held tha meeting at one Samaresh Debbarma’s house at Behalabari Sukhiyabari area.

However later talking in this regard, the police said that following the incident that occurred recently ahead of the ADC election, the 6thbattalion TSR and other security forces are deployed at Tulashikhar under Khowai District to keep a strict vigil along the bordering areas. The culprits involved with the incident could not be traced yet, police said.

It is worthy to be mentioned here that the incident occurred on Tuesday, i.e. on March 24 after one local lady Shabita Das (name changed) from the mentioned area witnessed at least 5 tribal youths along the bordering area under the Champahaor Police Station during the noon hour. She also witnessed one famed NLFT militant Pakhi Debbarma (nick name) and another IPFT leader at the incident spot on the very day. According to the lady after the IPFT leader has come to the spot with his motor cycle 2 out of the 5 tribal youths went away with the IPFT leader.

However, but such an incident ahead of the ADC election has of course triggered a terror among the local villagers now with the sliced wire fencing along the bordering area has brought an advantage and opportunities for the arm smugglers and the NLFT camped militants in Bangladesh to make an easy entrance to the state.
