Two hardcore NDFB(S) militants nabbed in Assam
Two hardcore NDFB(S) militants were apprehended on Sunday during a joint operation by Army and police in Assam’s Kokrajhar district.
Acting on specific information, a joint team of the Red Horns Division of the Army and police nabbed the duo, allegedly involved in the December 23 attack on adivasis and snatching weapons from the ecological battalion in October last, from Kokrajhar town this morning, a defence spokesman said here.
The Myanmar-trained militants have been identified as Sumkwr Mushahary alias Sugum and Swmkwr Basumatary and both were suspected to have fled to Bengaluru after the December 23 attack and had returned to the district recently.
The security forces recovered two 7.65 mm pistols, four live rounds of ammunition and some combat materials including documents, sources said.
