One NSCN (K) militant killed, another injured in Arunachal Pradesh gun fight
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.
The slain militant is yet to be identified.
Security personnel had recovered a rifle and five magazines from the area.
The frontier state of the north eastern region has witnessed several militant attacks on security forces in past a year.
