AGARTALA, TRIPURA, December 27, 2000: Baptist insurgents of the banned National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) raided Dalak, a Jamatia-dominated village at night on December 25 and killed Lab Kumar Jamatia, leader of Hoda Okhra, a religious organization of the community, for his refusal to embrace Christianity. Lab Kumar was beaten up severely and died at the Amarpur hospital Tuesday. Police are searching the area to nab the culprits. The Hoda Okhra recently called upon the people to resist insurgency in the state and not to step into the trap of Baptist insurgents to convert people from Hinduism to Christianity.
