KOHIMA, May 25
At least two jawans of the Assam Rifles were killed and three others sustained injuries on Saturday after suspected NSCN (K) militants ambushed a convoy of the security forces in Mon district in Nagaland.
A defence spokesman confirmed this and said that the incident took place between Tobu and Ukha villages around 1 pm.
According to reports, armed militants fired at a convoy of the Assam Rifles indiscriminately leading to death of two soldiers and injury of three others.
Although no outfit has claimed responsibility for the incident so far, the hands of NSCN (K) are suspected behind the incident, which is active in and around the area.
The incident took place barely three days after suspected armed militants killed a politician and ten others including his family members and personnel security officers (PSOs) at Tirap district in Arunachal Pradesh.
On May 21, suspected armed militants fired randomly at a convoy of Tirong Aboh, MLA from Khonsa West constituency in Arunachal Pradesh, at a remote location in Tirap district of the State.
