The National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) is a militant organization that seeks to secede from India and establish an independent state. The NLFT manifesto says that they want to expand the kingdom of God and Christ in Tripura. They have been accused of funding terrorism and forcing local tribals to convert to Christianity at gunpoint. They have also opened fire on Hindu worshippers and ransacked celebrations of Durga Puja. The NDFB is allied with the National Socialist Council of Nagalim and occupies training camps in the South of Bhutan
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.
