- More than 30 hardcore rebels of anti-talk faction of NDFB, including its military commander B. Bidai, are running for shelter in the Manas Tiger Reserve of Assam.
- They could not sustain the mounting pressure of the security forces and surrendered before the Army in two separate batches.
- Army had destroyed at least five courier points which were supplying ration to NDFB cadres in the wild forest, so the flow fund to the outfit has also dried up.
The Army and the police are mounting pressure on insurgents to surrender.
