On August 14, the banned rebel group Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA) has called for a 36-hour bandh in five Assam districts, demanding an independent nation called “Hirimba Raji State.”
The DNLA was founded in early 2019 with the goal of revitalising the national struggle and fighting for the liberation of the “Dimasa Nation,” a sovereign and independent nation.
From 5 am onwards, a bandh has been declared in Karbi Anglong, Dima Hasao, Cachar, Hailakandi, and Karimganj districts, according to a report by Pratidin Time.
The Isak-Muivah faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland is said to have trained members of this group, and six DNLA members were killed in an engagement with security forces along the Assam-Nagaland border in May this year.
