militants at Adokgre village near Chokpot
in South Garo Hills on April 13. A GNLA militant
was also seriously injured in the encounter.
The militants ambushed the Police team around
8.30 am. The Police have not disclosed the
name of the injured commando because of Security
reasons. The Police said the group which fired

The GNLA has also stepped up extortion activities
in all the three Districts of Garo hills.
The Police have warned businessmen and traders
not to cooperate with the GNLA.
