Popularly known as Dika, the 26-year-old Mizoram footballer has been a vital cog in East Bengal midfield. He had two assists in the I-League as the red-and-gold finished one-point behind Chennai City to settle for the second spot.

Dika has expressed his happiness in continuing with the team and said he is "delighted to play under the able coaching and guidance of coach Alejandro Menendez".

"I'm looking forward to a stellar season ahead," he said.

In a process of team rebuilding, East Bengal have already renewed contracts with Brandon Vanlalremdika and Spanish defender Borja Gomez.
