In retaliation to the surrender of seven of their underground members, banned NLFT militants gunned down eight of their relatives at Pusparampara in North Tripura district early on Tuesday.

Militants of the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) raided the village, about 70 km from Kanchanpur police station, and kidnapped the eight persons including four women and killed them in a nearby jungle.

The seven NLFT insurgents surrendered with arms and ammunition to the Deputy Superintendent of police, Amiya Chowdhury yesterday.

A strong contingent of Tripura State Rifles, led by the Superintendent of Police of North district, has launched a combing operation there.
