NLFB leader M Batha surrenders

Guwahati: Outlawed National Liberation Front of Bodoland (NLFB) chief M Batha laid down his arms along with 23 cadres of the organization on Thursday.
Batha returned to the mainstream from the arms struggle at the Udalguri district. During his surrender process, Minister Pijush Hazarika, Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) chief Pramod Boro, and Special DGP GP Singh were present.

Hazarika during Batha’s surrender claimed that he along with the cadres returned to the mainstream because of CM Himanta Biswa Sarma’s call.
It may be mentioned that Batha was a well-known sharpshooter of the disbanded National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) Anti-Talks faction.

After all the leaders of the NDFB surrendered and joined the mainstream for peace talks, Batha formed a new extremist group naming it NLFB with an aim to revive the arms movement in BTR.
Batha also had a bounty of Rs 10 lakh on his head as announced by the NIA.
