Video: 2013 In an embarrassment for the Congress ahead of the Tripura elections, youth party leader Sandeep Roy Barman was arrested with arms, Bangladeshi currency, and letterhead of the banned outfit, the National Liberation Front of Tripura. He is the brother of Tripura PCC chief Sudip Roy Barman. He was arrested by Assam Rifles near Agartala, but was released on a personal bond.  "My brother has been released unconditionally as the preliminary probe found that he was nowhere linked with the incident. Congress does not believe in arms or violence. This is a conspiracy by the Tripura government to malign not just the family's image, but the party's image," Sudip Roy Barman said.

National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT), also known as National Liberation Front of Tripura - Biswamohan Debbarma (NLFT - BM), NLFT-B is an active group formed c. 1989.
