Although under control, but the movement of militants in Tripura is not stopping.
Tripura Police managed to nab one such NLFT over ground collaborator based on tip-off.
The cadre identified as Pabitra Jamatia (38) arrested from Killa area in Gomati district.
His job was to arrange for training of innocent people from Tripura to Bangladesh. The police handed him over to the court . The court sent him to jail till October 23.
According to police sources, on September 20, Pabitra took 4 tribal boys from Tripura to the militant base in Shilchari area of Khagrachari district across the border from Raishyabari.
They were made to understand that they would get government assistance only if they surrendered to the militant base in Bangladesh for a few days.
But, after going there they are forced to undergo 2 months of training. As a result, three of them fled to Tripura.
As soon as the matter came to the notice of the police, the security forces started searching in various ways to trap the Pabitra.
