Assam: Kokrajhar Police Arrested KLO Linkmen On Extortion Costs
The suspects recognized as Bishnu Rai and Tapas Rai had been arrested from the Serfanguri space of the district.
The Kamtapur Liberation Organisation is a far-left militant group based mostly in Northeast India whose goal was to liberate the Kamtapur nation from India.
The proposed state is to comprise six districts in West Bengal and 4 contiguous districts of Assam that are Cooch Behar, Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, North and South Dinajpur and Malda, Kokrajhar, Bongaigaon, Dhubri and Goalpara, Kishanganj districts in Bihar, and Jhapa District in Nepal. The KLO was fashioned to handle issues of the Koch Rajbongshi individuals resembling large-scale unemployment, land alienation, perceived neglect of the Kamtapuri language, identification, and grievances of financial deprivation.
In line with sources, the accused KLO linkmen allegedly tried to extort cash from a businessman, particularly Sunil Mandal.
