AGARTALA, Jan 5 � Against all odds, insurgency has been largely contained in Tripura with only eight extremist-related incidents registered in the State during the last year whereas it was nine in the year 2013.

The number of kidnapping cases has reduced to eight in the year 2014 against ten in the previous year and only one kidnapped person is still in militant captivity.

Based on the intelligence inputs provided by Tripura police, a huge quantity of arms and ammunition � six AK series rifles, one LMG and four sophisticated rifles were recovered from Mizoram. Relentless efforts by the security agencies have resulted in the surrender of 25 NLFT militants with arms and ammunition.

Speaking to the media on the occasion of Police Day here, Tripura DGP K Nagaraj on Sunday said the Bangladesh security agencies � Army, RAB and BGB have already launched massive operations against the NLFT and ATTF camps in their soil.

In course of those operations, few NLFT camps have reportedly been destroyed and a good number of arms and ammunition recovered, the DGP said adding efforts are still on to complete the fencing works along the Indo-Bangla border at the earliest. Of the total 856 km Indo-Bangla border, 147 km is yet to be fenced.

Noting that the overall law and order situation has improved, he said the State witnessed an average 12 per cent reduction in general crime while property-related cases also registered a 21 per cent reduction.

Nagraj said crime against women has also reduced by 4.5 per cent though much is needed to be done to address the problem. In the year 2013, a total of 1,710 such cases were registered while it has gone down to 1,629 in 2014.
