M Batha, chief of newly-floated insurgent outfit National Liberation Front of Bodoland (NLFB) along with his cadres will come over ground and surrender before Assam Police on Thursday.
Batha floated NLFB following the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) was disbanded after the signing of the third Bodo peace accord in January 2020. He initially surrendered following the peace accord but later took up arms and went into the forest.
Batha, along with Boko and a few other NLFB leaders and cadres will reach the Assam Arunachal border in the Udalguri district at around noon on Thursday, according to a source.
The rest of the NLFB cadres will come down from different locations over the weekdays, added the source.
NLFB was involved in extortion activities in the four districts of the Bodoland territorial region.
