Guwahati, Feb 4 (IBNS) : A militant of Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang was killed and another injured during an encounter with Assam Rifles in Arunachal Pradesh’s Longding on Friday evening, officials said on Saturday.

A top Assam Rifles official said that, following a tip off, a troop had launched operation at Ozakho village along Arunachal Pradesh-Myanmar border about presence of a militant group.

“When the troop reached at the remote area, the militants started fire and heavy rounds of bullet were exchanged,” the official said.

During the gun fight, a NSCN (K) militant was killed on spot and another injured.
