ULFA surrenders mount after Burmese military action against Northeast rebels


There seems to be a spurt in surrenders from the ranks of the ULFA-Independent (ULFA-I) after the Burmese military action at Taga in Myanmar’s Sagaing Division. Taga served as the main base area for the Northeast rebel groups continuing to fight against India.

The NSCN-K controlled the Taga zone but groups like the ULFA(I) had set up camps there. Four rebel groups including the NSCN-K and the ULFA(I) were part of the rebel coalition UNLFSWEA which attacked Indian forces regularly.

In early February, the Burmese army Tatmadaw overran the NSCN-K camps in Taga and attacked ULFA camps in the area, leading to the death of ‘Major’ Jyotirmoy Asom and some other ULFA cadres. Read More
