West Bengal's Special Task Force (STF) has arrested an active militant of the banned Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (KLO) from Siliguri on February 25.

Sudip Bhattacharya, DSP, STF Siliguri told news agency ANI that the person has been identified as Avinash Roy alias Jakey of the Kokrajhat area of Assam.

Founded in 1990s, KLO is a far-left militant organisation based in Northeast India whose objective is to carve out a separate state from the districts of north Bengal and Assam.

The KLO was formed to address problems of the Koch Rajbongshi people such as large-scale unemployment, land alienation, perceived neglect of Kamtapuri language, identity, and grievances of economic deprivation.
