TURA, June 7 - Chased by the police while they were in the general camp of the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA), two more members of the outfit today surrendered to the police in Williamnagar in East Garo Hills (EGH).
The two GNLA militants, who hail from Dimogre village in Rongsak, East Garo Hills and identified as Mithun Ch Marak (Sildoreng) and Roberth Ch Marak (Alda), surrendered in front of EGH Superintendent of Police (SP) Davis Nestel R Marak.
The duo had joined the GNLA as recruits of the 6th batch and had undergone training in firing of pistols and rifles and use of hand grenades and bombs.
The cadres were staying together with other GNLA militants in the general camp of GNLA when Meghalaya Police laid a siege on them, firing from all directions.
The two managed to escape and were on the run before contacting Joint Secretary of UDP, Arun N Marak and their relatives who helped them to surrender at 11 am. They said that they have been leading a very difficult life in the jungle amidst constant fear of attack and expressed happiness to come over ground.
