    M Batha alias Binod Mushahary and B Bidai alias Bishnu Basumatary, two top leaders of the NDFB-S, came overground on January 22nd, 2020 along with 600 cadres from undisclosed camps along India-Bhutan border in Assam’s Kokrajhar district.

    The cadres received “rousing welcome” at Rangapara as villagers gathered in huge numbers to catch a glimpse of the militants.

    This comes after Saoraigwra, 27 other cadres including NDFB general secretary B R Feranga and its finance secretary B Dwmwilu signed the Suspension of Operations (SoO) agreement with the Centre.
