In a press release, the armed forced maintain that during a search operation, arms, ammunition and other incriminating material were recovered from the lady cadre, which allegedly proves her affiliation to NDFB (S).
Saoraigwra, the President of NDFB (S) had issued a press release blaming Security Forces for wrongly implicating a poor lady.
However, the army maintains that the allegations levelled are completely baseless with devious motives.
The release also states that the arrest of Rishima narzary has unsettled NDFB (S) and delivered a blow to their illegitimate activities in the region, causing panic among the top leadership of NDFB (S).
In the communique, the armed forces have further alleged that the intention of NDFB (S) top leadership in reacting to this operation is maliciously aimed at tarnishing the image of Security Forces and perpetrates ‘misleading propaganda among the masses.’
