Guwahati, Sept 16 (IBNS) : Security forces have apprehended two hardcore militants belonging to NSCN (K) in Assam’s Tinsukia district on Saturday, officials said.

According to the reports, based on intelligence input about presence of NSCN (K) militants in Assam’s Tinsukia district along the Arunachal Pradesh border, the Changlang battalion of Assam Rifles had launched an operation at Malugaon area in the upper Assam district.

Kohima based Defence PRO Colonel Chiranjeet Konwer said that, on September evening the security personnel had apprehended a militant identified as Kngmu Hakhun alias Ramesh Kakhun with a pistol, ammunition and a radio set.

“On spot interrogation, he revealed his allegiance to NSCN (K) and had joined the banned outfit in 2015 and was working as a Ranapio and OGW in Ledo belt by providing logistic help and carrying out extortion on behalf of NSCN (K),” the Defence PRO said.

Thereafter on Saturday morning, the security personnel apprehended another hardcore NSCN (K) militant identified as Singmai Hacheng.

“The individual admitted his allegiance to this banned organization and informed that he was initially recruited in NSCN (R) in June 2015, carried out training with them and later defected to NSCN (K) in March 2016 and has been involved with this banned outfit since them,” Colonel Konwer said.
