Guwahati, Oct 16 (IBNS): In a major setback to NSCN (R) a self-styled Corporal and Town Commander of Changlang town was apprehended Sunday night by the Changlang battalion in Arunachal Pradesh.

Kohima based Defence PRO Colonel Chiranjeet Konwer said that based on a specific input of a militant trying to terrorize and extort money from Changlang town, a column of security forces reached the location of the militant.

“On seeing the column approach the militant tried to flee, however, the alert column apprehended the escaping him. Changlang battalion under DAO Division has been carrying out unabated operations in South Arunachal Pradesh to keep the area peaceful and out of clutches of insurgents and this apprehension will go a long way in creating fear among the anti national elements in the area,” Colonel Konwer said.

The nabbed militant was identified as Hangnong Pangtha.
