Guwahati, Aug 13 (IBNS) : Security forces on Saturday night apprehended two NSCN (R) militants in Arunachal Pradesh’s Changlang district, officials said on Sunday.

Kohima based Defence PRO Colonel Chiranjeet Konwar said following intelligence input, the Changlang Battalion of  Assam Rifles launched an operation at Yongchik village of Changlang District and apprehended a senior cadre of NSCN (R) with an accomplice.

The nabbed militants were identified as Bokam Wangrey, Self Styled Sergeant Major, Rajapio South Changlang of NSCN(R) and Raju Kumar Choudhury.

Security personnel had recovered a AK-47 assault rifle, ammunition, contraband, multiple SIM cards and other incriminating evidence in possession from them. 

“With this arrest, the security forces have so far apprehended two senior cadres of the outfit in the past two weeks which will result in a major leadership upheaval in the outfit and could severely dent the extortion nexus,” the Defence PRO said.

Security forces have been carrying out aggressive operations in the South Arunachal Pradesh and this apprehension has struck a blow to the extortion activities being carried out by the underground cadres of the group in the area.
