Guwahati: The security forces on Tuesday shot down a cadre of dreaded militant outfit NDFB (S), believed to be involved in the massacre of Adivasis in Assam. The encounter took place at Chirang district in Assam.

“An encounter took place at about 3:30 am between NDFB(S) militants and a joint team of Assam Police and CRPF’s Cobra battalion,” Assam Inspector General of Police (BTAD) L R Bishnoi said.

The encounter lasted some time and a militant of NDFB(S) was killed, he said. “From the slain militant, we recovered one 9 mm Browning pistol, one 36 HE (high explosive) grenades, one magazine, five live rounds and four fired rounds,” Bishnoi said.

The militant was identified as Rinsar Narzary alias Gaitha (24) and he was a self-styled Section Commander of the banned organisation.
