Surrendered KPLT member, foreground, Alex Singh, openly brandishing a pistol in Diphu town, Karbi Anglong. In the background are his men beating up a youth, on the left.

A trifle matter that can be solved with a little politeness was blown out of proportion when Alex Singh draw out his pistol and openly threaten the youth. Somehow KLNLF militant leaders got wind of the incident and reached there. Local reporters were already there when the biker youth was being beaten up by the former militant Singh.

The incident left people wondering as to how a surrendered militant, who is now a civilian can go around town with arms. People are saying that some quarters might have an interest in keeping surrendered militants with arms in order to carry out doubtful activities. Such incidents are a precursor to bringing ‘gun culture’ into the society.

Three of the victims were identified as Mika Singh, Debendra Shaw and Dilip Kumar.

The operations were continuing, the police said, and a search was on for the missing CRPF men.

The KPLT was formed on January eight last by an anti-peace talk breakaway group of 25 members of the Karbi Longri National Liberation Front (KLNLF) after it had laid down arms.

The KPLT had given a call for an indefinite district bandh from Thursday last as it had not received a reply from the political parties to its five-point charter of demands, including autonomous statehood for Karbi Anglong, halt operations against the outfit and development of the education facilities here.
