Indian Government Bans Tripura-Based Insurgent Groups for Five Years

In a significant move aimed at safeguarding national sovereignty and integrity, the Indian government has imposed a ban on Tripura-based insurgent groups, the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) and the All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF), as well as their associated organizations for a duration of five years. The decision comes in response to their involvement in various subversive activities and threats to the nation’s sovereignty, as stated in an official notification by the Union Home Ministry.

The professed goal of the NLFT and the ATTF is to establish an independent nation through the secession of Tripura from India, employing armed struggle in collaboration with other armed secessionist groups within the northeastern state. Their objective also includes inciting the indigenous population of Tripura to support such secession.

The government has expressed its concern over the NLFT and the ATTF engaging in subversive and violent activities that undermine the authority of the government, spread terror among the populace, and promote violence to achieve their aims. These groups have been involved in violent and unlawful activities, which pose a direct threat to the sovereignty and integrity of India.

Additionally, the NLFT and the ATTF have been implicated in civilian casualties, as well as attacks on police and security forces. They have also been linked to extortion activities, targeting the public, including businesses and traders. Furthermore, the groups have maintained camps in neighboring countries to serve as safe sanctuaries, training centers, and sources for procuring arms and ammunition.

The notification issued by the Central Government invokes the powers granted under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, declaring the NLFT, along with all its factions, wings, and front organizations, as well as the ATTF, along with its affiliated factions, wings, and front organizations, as unlawful associations.

The ban imposed by the Home Ministry will remain in effect for a period of five years.
