Bangladesh unearths ATTF arms

Agartala, June 4: The All Tripura Tiger Force, responsible for civilian massacres and attacks on police and paramilitary forces in the state, has virtually ceased to exist since the arrest of its supremo Ranjit Debbarma from Daigyabai under Sadar (North).

Debbarma had been pushed back into Indian territory by the Border Guards of Bangladesh (BGB). But even as he languishes in jail, his legacy in the form of a huge underground stock of arms and ammunition remains at Satcherri in Habiganj district of Bangladesh, adjacent to Simna in Tripura.

Ranjit had stocked the cache at Satcherri in collaboration with Ulfa militants.

But now these hidden arms have started coming out into the open.

Officials keeping tab on trans-border developments in Bangladesh said over the past three days a group of 100 Rapid Action Batallion from the neighbouring country, led by RAB additional director, Lt Col Jiaul Hassan, have been conducting a special search operation at Satcherri, once used as the headquarters of ATTF militants.
