GUWAHATI, Sept 28 � Four hardcore NDFB(S) militants were killed in an encounter with security forces and a huge cache of arms and ammunition recovered in Kokrajhar district today, reports PTI.

Acting on a tip-off, troops of the Red Horn Division and the police launched a joint operation in a dense forest near Kokrajhar and killed the four militants during an encounter this morning, a defence spokesman said.

The forces recovered an AK-56, three pistols and hand grenades from the slain militants.

One of the slain militants was the self-styled second-in-command of the outfit Muhar Basumatary. Assam Police Inspector General (BTAD) LR Bishnoi said the other ultras were identified as Domsatorong, Loharun and Maisaran.

Security forces stepped up patrolling the remote areas of Kokrajhar and Chirang districts in the wake of �NDFB(S) Raising Day� of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland on October 3 next.

According to Army Intelligence, the NDFB(S) was trying to carry out a major strike on security forces and also target minority communities in retaliation to the arrest of five of their hardcore members in Chirang district on August 20.

Security forces had apprehended five terrorists of a newly-formed Nepalese terrorist organisation, the United Gorkha Peoples Organization, in Parbatjhora area of Kokrajhar district on September 13. An Army spokesman claimed the NDFB(S) had outsourced the outfit to carry out operations in Kokrajhar district because of proactive operations and pressure exerted by the security forces.
