Assam”s Dima Hasao district militant organization Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA) has announced a three-month unilateral ceasefire, according to a news release.

End to all military operations by DNLA started from September 7, 2021


“This is a goodwill gesture and welcome response to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s demand for peace,” reads the release, which was made accessible to the media on Wednesday but signed a day earlier.

According to a press announcement signed by Mungsri Ringsmai Dimasa, the ceasefire took effect on Tuesday.

Ceasefire intended to create atmosphere for peace talks

When the truce was declared by the DNLA and announced by their press secretary, Mungsri Ringsmai Dimas, they said they were clearing the path for peace talks with Assam and India.

The ceasefire is intended to “create an atmosphere for peace talks with the Government of Assam and the Government of India”, according to the report’s conclusion.

In Dima Hasao, the group killed five individuals, prompting the decision to declare a ceasefire, according to sources.

5 civilians were killed in indiscriminate fire by DNLA

In Dima Hasao district, DNLA insurgents launched indiscriminate fire, killing five civilians.

Seven coal-laden trucks were targeted by DNLA militants who opened fire on them and burned them ablaze.

The event occurred late on August 26 in Dima Hasao’s Diyungmukh neighborhood.

Five charred remains were later found in the burned trucks

Two truck drivers were killed by gunfire, while three others were burned to death after extremists set fire to their cars, according to the police.

Assam Rifles, the Army, and the police started a coordinated search and rescue operation to find the insurgents.

As of early 2019, the DNLA had been founded. When five coal-truck drivers in the Dima Hasao district allegedly refused to pay money demanded by the group, the group’s members were suspected of being involved.

Asked by PTI, the administration refused to confirm the news

According to a senior government official, a truce is imminent and that a clearer picture would be available in a few days.

Former chief minister Sarma had appealed to all militants to come forward for negotiations after entering office on May 10.

As of May 15, the ULFA (I) has unilaterally declared a truce for three months, which was extended by the group again on August 14.
