Two insurgents of outlawed All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF) have surrendered and deposited arms and ammunition in West Tripura district, police said on Monday.
Barun Debbarma (29) and Nirmal Debbarma, who fled from their base camps in neighbouring Bangladesh surrendered to the police in Khowai sub-division Sunday and deposited one revolver and some cartridges.
The surrendered insurgents, during interrogation, told police that there has been large scale desertion of the insurgents in the past year due to raids by Bangladesh security forces and non-payment of wages by the insurgent leaders.
Since January last year, about 400 insurgents of two banned outfits, ATTF and National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT), have surrendered to security forces in the state.
