36 DHD-J cadres yet to surrender

SILCHAR, Sept 23: The much-hyped ceremonial surrender of the Black Widow seems to have faced a jolt as 36 cadres of the outfit have reportedly preferred jungle life to mainstream of society. A source told The Sentinel that at least 36 militants refused to join their comrades who had already surrendered their arms before the district administration. It was declared that ceremonial surrender would take place on September 24 in presence of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi. Official sources now hinted that formal surrender of the militants might be held on October 2. Meanwhile, cracks seem to have surfaced in the Dimasa outfit as a number of militants have turned down the offer made by their leaders to surrender along with arms. Sources close to the outfit told The Sentinel that at least 36 militants were hiding in a jungle near Khejuwari under Dihangi PS. This group is led by self-styled lieutenant Ganga Dimasa alias Galamla, Karam Dimasa, 2nd lieutenant and Dipu Dimasa. They have reportedly refused to surrender.

Meanwhile, the International Red Cross Society has expressed reservation for housing the surrendered militants in its hospital in Jatinga without taking its prior permission. THE SENTINEL
