New Dimasa militant outfit

SILCHAR, Sept 3: Vowing to protect the Dimasa community from the systematic attacks of the non-Dimasa tribes, a new militant outfit had come up in the trouble torn Dima Hasao (erstwhile NC Hills) district. The outfit was named as Dima National Democratic Front (DNDF). One Jainisring Dimasa, claiming himself as the publicity secretary of the newly formed outfit had reportedly stated that since both the factions of the DHD were now in truce with the Government, the Dimasa community had become an easy target of various non-Dimasa tribes. Sources said, Kemaron Dimasa was the self-styled chairman of DNDF and Leiding Dimasa the ‘commander-in-chief’. It is to be noted that, non-Dimasa tribes, demanding bifurcation of the Dima Hasao into two autonomous districts, had formed a militant outfit called Hill Tigers Force. This outfit had already made its presence felt by triggering a series of bomb blasts in the district. On the other hand, pro-talk faction of DHD, led by Dilip Nunisa had already declared that if the Government does not concede to their demand for a separate Dimaraji state, they would be compelled to take up arms again.
