GUWAHATI, June 26 - The Indian Army today rubbished allegations by the NDFB (S) that security forces had wrongly implicated a poor lady and branded her as a terrorist.
�On the night of June 16, based on corroborated intelligence, a search operation was launched by a joint task force of police and army in Samudisha village in Chirang, in which a locally trained NDFB (S) lady cadre Rishima Narzary was arrested,� defence spokesman Lt Col P Khongsai said in a statement.
During the search operation, arms, ammunition and other incriminating material were recovered from the lady cadre, which is a clear indication of her involvement in anti-national activities and her affiliation to NDFB (S), he said.
�The allegations leveled by the NDFB are completely baseless. The fact remains that the arrest of Rishima Narzary has unsettled the NDFB (S) and delivered a blow to their illegitimate activities in the region, causing panic among its top leadership,� the Army spokesman said.
�The intention of the NDFB (S) top leadership reacting to this operation is maliciously aimed at tarnishing the image of security forces and perpetrate misleading propaganda among the masses,� he added.
