KOKRAJHAR, Jan 10 � Assam Police�s most wanted NDFB(S) militant and one of the prime accused in the killing of Adivasis at Pakriguri and other places in Kokrajhar, Jagat Basumatary alias B Jwblang, a self-styled platoon commander of the outfit, was killed this afternoon in an encounter with Kokrajhar police near North Khausibazar forest area under Serfanguri Police Station in Kokrajhar, informed Additional Superintendent of Police Kokrajhar, Surjeet Sing Panesar.

Police also recovered an AK-56 rifle with a magazine, two hand grenades, twenty- one rounds of live ammunition and eighteen empty fire cases from the spot, he said.

ASP Panesar informed that after receiving secret information regarding movements of Jagat along with some other cadres in the area, a team of Assam Police and SSB led by him this afternoon carried out a search operation in the forest area, where the encounter subsequently took place. He informed that the other militants managed to escape under the cover of thick forest. The police had announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh for the capture of Jagat.
