A National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khaplang) (NSCN-K) militant was killed and an Indian Army jawan injured in an operation conducted by the Special Forces along the India-Myanmar border in Arunachal Pradesh.
The operation, which began at 7:30 am on Monday, is still underway in the heavily forested area of Longding district in Arunachal Pradesh.
Security personnel also recovered a radio set and ammunition, including an AK-56, a hand grenade and live bullets during the raid.
After a meeting with Minister of State Home Kiren Rijijun on Monday, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat told the media: "It is a normal routine operation. Such operations are conducted everyday. Nothing big about them."
The Indian Army's Eastern Command said in a tweet: "Dao Div neutralised Honcham Wangsa, self styled Corporal of NSCN-K near Kunsa Vill, Arunachal Pradesh."
