Four women insurgents of the anti-talk faction of NDFB (R) were arrested along with a two-year old child in lower Assam's Sonitpur district and documents containing plans of bomb blast were found in their possession.
The four, along with the child, were apprehended at the Assam State Transport Corporation bus stop in Tezpur by a team led by Superintendent of Police Jitmol Doley while proceeding to Myanmar via Nagaland last night and letters by a NDFB leader regarding bomb blast plans were recovered from them, official sources said.
Police also recovered Rs 12.16,135 lakh in cash, believed to be extortion money, from the four as well besides the letters of NDFB (National Democratic Front of Bodoland) Ranjan Daimary '3rd battalion' faction.
The seized documents included six letters of NDFB 'Vice-chairman' G Risikhang about 'resolutions' of the battalion taken on May 10 and June 17 last to carry bomb blasts on major bridges to disrupt communication and vital installations in Assam, besides proposals for sending certain NDFB ultras to Myanmar.
A mobile phone was also recovered containing numbers of senior NDFB members and the banned outfit's headquarters in different parts of Assam.
The women were to proceed on to Myanmar via bordering Mao district of Nagaland to hand over the money to yet unidentified persons for supplying arms, ammunition and explosives, the sources said.
