Itanagar: One Shammar Ngemu, a self-styled private of the NSCN (K), surrendered before the police and armed forces in the Changlang district on Sunday.
Officials said Ngemu (35), a native of New Khamlang village in Changlang’s Miao circle had joined the NSCN (K) in 2011 on being influenced by the cadres of the outfit.
He completed his three-month-long basic training at Khamki Training Centre in Myanmar and was since living in the Tungmai III mile area of Myanmar under self-styled captain Chauwan Singh of the NSCN (K). In 2018 he shifted his camp in Tamaikung after which he finally decided to put down his arms, officials said.
Ngemu is the third cadre from the NSCN (K) to surrender before the police and security forces in a span of 3 months.
Earlier, two cadres of the outfit, namely Markham Ngaimong and Tuman Havi, had laid down their arms to live a normal life again and contribute to society.
Meanwhile, Changlang superintendent of police Mihin Gambo has urged all the other misguided youths to return to the mainstream instead of facing the brunt of the police and security forces.
