Flag of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland

The National Democratic Front of Bodoland, also known as NDFB or the Bodo Security Force, is a separatist movement that is predominantly Christian which seeks to obtain a sovereign Bodoland for the Bodo people in Assam. The founder of the organization, Ransaigra Nabla Daimari, alias Ranjan Daimari, continues to lead the organization.[1]



The organization came into being on October 3, 1986, in Odla Khasibari village close to Udalguri. It was originally called Boro Security Force (BSF) and changed its name to the present one on November 25, 1994. [1] This organization is often confused with the erstwhile Bodo Liberation Tigers Force, which has since joined the political mainstream. The flag of the NDFB is green with a yellow star on red background on the corner.


This organisation fights to get a sovereign Bodoland north of the Brahmaputra River. It was very active during the 1990s. It consists of around 1,000 fighters. The NDFB is allied with the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (IM) and illegally occupies terrorist training camps in the South of Bhutan. In December 2003, the government of Bhutan and the Indian Army launched joint operations to destroy these terrorist camps operated in Bhutanese territory by ULFA and NDFB. They also were implicated in the assassination of Bineshwar Brahma, a prominent educationist and litterateur in Bodoland opposed to the writing of the Bodo language in Roman script.


Although most of the leadership is unknown. It was revealed that the "home secretary" of the NDFB is Sabin Boro.[2]


Under an agreement on May 24, 2005 with the Government of India and the NDFB has been maintaining a ceasefire since June 1, 2005. Since the cease fire the level of threat posed by the NDFB has dropped. The agreement stated that the NDFB agree to cease hostile action against security forces and civilians. In return, the security forces would not carry out operations against the group's members. The agreement also stipulated that NDFB members would disarm and live in camps protected by the military for a year, and would refrain from assisting other militant groups.[3] The ceasefire is expected to lead to talks between the armed group and state agencies and ultimately to a complete halt in armed conflicts.

However, in May 2006, five members of the security forces were abducted and then killed by suspected NDFB members in Assam's Udalguri district. The group also continued to clash with cadres of the ex-BLTF (Bodo Liberation Tiger Force). On June 5 2006, two former BLTF cadres were killed by NDFB militants in the Karbi Anglong district, and one former member of the disbanded group was lynched by suspected NDFB militants in Golaghat district on June 3, 2007.[3]
