NSCN-K militants attack Assam Rifles camp in Arunachal

Guwahati, June 7 (IANS) Suspected militants from the NSCN-Khaplang outfit on Sunday attacked a camp of the Assam Rifles in Arunachal Pradesh. However, no causality was reported.

Heavily armed militants started firing indiscriminately at the camp in Tirap district in early hours of Sunday, prompting retaliatory firing by the para-military Assam Rifles personnel, an Assam Rifles spokesman said.

The militants fled after retaliation by the Assam Rifles, he said.

The attack came four days after a group of terrorists, including National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang militants, ambushed an army convoy in Manipur, killing 18 army men.

The NSCN-K in March abrogated the ceasefire accord with the central government and since then has been targeting security forces in Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Manipur.
