SHILLONG: The State Police have launched a massive operation in search of six hardcore HNLC cadres who are believed to be hinding in Mawkyrwat and Ranikor areas in West Khasi Hills district.

The militants were part of a team sent for disrupting the Republic Day functions in villages along the international border with Bangladesh, police said.

Jowai police recently arrested two cadres — Rilang Dohling and Maianbor Tongseng — from Ladthadlaboh and seized two AK-47 rifles from their possession.

Another intention of the HNLC team to cross over from Bangladesh is to restart their extortion activities in coal belt areas of Borsora and Nongjri, police sources added.
