Shillong: The forbidden Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) on Friday said that its military wing Chief Bobby Reagan Marwein is still alive and media reports of his death in Bangladesh are baseless.
On Thursday, the Kolkata-based daily ‘The Telegraph’ said that Marwein, the founding member of HNLC, a secessionist Khasi rebel group, was killed in a brawl in Bangladesh this week.
HNLC Spokesman Sainkupar Nongtraw said that “Our Chief of army staff Mr. Bobby Marwein he is fine, secure, healthy and unharmed.”
“There is no such thing anywhere where HNLC chief is involved in a brawl leading to his death. This is nothing but cheap propaganda,” Nongtraw said, while accusing the Indian government of spreading baseless propaganda against the HNLC.
Disprove the report of ‘The Telegraph’, the HNLC said that “such motivated report will not serve any purpose to weaken or demoralise the HNLC forces.”
