Imphal: As many as 68 members of six terrorist cadres have surrendered before Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh, the news agency ANI reported on Monday.
They include four women cadres.
This comes two days after an IANS report said Biren Singh had welcomed talks between leaders of former militant groups with New Delhi’s interlocutor.
He also said feelers had been sent out to insurgents still fighting the state.
Debendra Sharma, a former director of the Intelligence Bureau, has started talks to settle issues, including the demand for a homeland and rehabilitation, with those who have come overground in the state, Biren Singh said.
