Agartala, Nov 28 (UNI) A hardcore activist of All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF) surrendered before the sixth battalion of the Tripura State Rifles (TSR) at Chakmaghat area of Atharamura range.
Police here today said the surrendered extremist, identified as Satyajit Debbarma (25), was involved in a number of murder cases and was wanted by the police for long.
He deposited a rifle of AK 66 series and 100 rounds of live ammunition, along with some incriminating documents of the outfit yesterday.
Police said security forces had been exerting pressure on the extremists and had successfully cut off their overground links as well as civil support bases.
Movement from Bangladesh hideouts was also remarkably contained because of fencing and guarding, which forced the militants to surrender, police claimed.
The state police issued warrant against five ATTF activists - Jagadish Debbarma, Satyaranjan Debbarma, Rajkumar Debbarma, Jogendra Debbarma and Bapan Debbarma - whose involvement in the October 1 serial blasts at Agartala was established in primary investigation.
Nine people have been arrested so far in connection with the serial blasts and three of them had been issued conditional bail.
Meanwhile, the state administration reviewed security arrangements today following the terror strikes in Mumbai. Security has been beefed up in all the vital installations in the state.
