KLO orders Bhutias to quit north Bengal
December 23, 2003 19:51 IST
In the wake of the offensive by the Royal Bhutan Army against Indian insurgents operating from its soil, the banned Kamtapur Liberation Organisation on Tuesday issued a 'Quit Notice' to all Bhutias residing in Kamtapur region in north Bengal.
He urged KLO cadres to drive out the Bhutias from the region "as Bhutan has betrayed the trust, which we had placed in them as they had never earlier opposed our stay in that country. Bhutias will have to leave north Bengal unless the Bhutan government stop operations against us."On December 21, the United Liberation Front of Asom had issued a similar threat.
