By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Jan 13 � The NDFB(S) received another major setback as eight of its hardcore members including self-styled second lieutenant Enon Bargoyary alias Erkhang and chief recruiting officer and self-styled platoon commander of Amteka area Rinen Basumatary alias Majhi, were apprehended by a joint team of�troops of Red Horns Division and Assam Police�along the jungles of�Assam-Bhutan border,�in Chirang district today.

Enon Bargoyary is the chief recruiting officer of NDFB(S), central committee member and a Bhutan trained militant. He was involved in recruiting and motivating NDFB(S) militants, including woman cadres and sending them to various camps outside the country. He was very close to the outfit�s chief Songbijit, G Bidai and Batha.

Enon is believed to be the brain behind the killing of Adivasis on December 23 last in Kokrajhar district.

Self-styled platoon commander of Amteka area Rinen Basumatary who surrendered after Operation All Clear in 2003, rejoined the NDFB(S) two years back. Four weapons including two AKs, two pistols and a large quantity of ammunition were recovered from the apprehended ultras.
