SHILLONG: Several top leaders of Achik Matgrik Elite Force (AMEF), a breakaway faction of GNLA, are all set to surrender on Wednesday.
According to sources, the chairman of the outfit Timut Marak of Nongshram village in East Garo Hills and command-in-chief Sengjan Arengh are among those who will give up on Wednesday.
Arengh used to regularly give press statements in the name of Jan Areng.
Timut was with ANVC before joining GNLA.
From GNLA, Timut defected to ASAK along with Jack Marak, and former GNLA leader Reding T Sangma. Subsequently, Timut along with Jack formed AMEF.
Later, Jack who assumed the role of commander-in-chief of AMEF was killed by police in Mendipathar region on May 2 this year which led to Arengh to take over the mantle.
Earlier on Tuesday, the top leaders of AMEF had surrendered before the police at Rongjeng.
Later, police had waited for some more cadres to surrender before arranging the official surrender ceremony at police headquarters on Wednesday.
