The cadres laid down their arms in front of the state’s additional director general of police Hiren Nath, and Karbi Anglong’s chief executive member (CEM), Tuliram Ronghang, during a programme at Dhansiripar in Karbi Anglong district.

Welcoming them into the mainstream, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said the cadres have committed themselves to realise the dream of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah of a progressive and peaceful Assam.

“Committing themselves to the dream of Hon PM & Hon HM of progressive and peaceful Assam, I am glad to share that 67 cadres of DNLA laid down weapons today at Dhansiripar, Karbi Anglong,” he tweeted.

The DNLA militants had deposited 9 pistols with magazines, two AK series rifles, guns and a large number of ammunition.
