The Centre has banned the Dima Halam Daogah (DHD)-Black Widow militant group in the wake of its involvement in several incidents of violence in Assam.

The decision was taken at a meeting of Cabinet Committee on Security headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh yesterday.

The move comes in the wake of DHD's involvement in several violent incidents in North Cachar Hills district where the group targeted businessmen, railway properties besides government officials.

DHD's chief Jewel Garlosa was arrested in Bangalore last month.
