A month later, Self-Style Commander-in-chief of the outfit, Ruhan Patir sent the first batch of 12 youths from Dhemaji district for undergoing training in a National Democratic Front of Bodoland camp on the Assam-Arunachal border in Assam's Sonitpur district.

He alerted the community members not to give shelter them under any circumstances.
