AGARTALA, April 4 (TIWN): Just after the announcement of the date of the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) poll slated to be held on May 3, the banned National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) have been planning to disrupt the elections of the twenty eight member Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) election here in the state. According to sources, the extremists’ threat has started rising in the eastern sector with incidents of kidnapping of workers for subscription, ransom money. The banned outfit earlier served letters to the villagers to give subscription as land and property tax. In the letter, they fixed the amounts ranging from Rs. 2000 to Rs. 12000 as per the living standards. They even threatened to abduct the villagers if they failed to pay the money as per their demand within due time, the source added. On the other hand to prevent any untoward incident BSF has intensified vigil along Tripura’s 856-km-long border with Bangladesh. “We have been directed by our higher authorities in Delhi to intensify vigil along the border in the wake of reports that Tripura is being used as a corridor or transit point for entry of fundamentalist and terrorist elements into India”, said a high level BSF official.

The insurgents were using the Tripura-Mizoram-Bangladesh tri-junction as corridor, the source said security agencies, including the Assam Riffles, have been trying hard to stop infiltration of militants from across the border.
