Turf war between NSCN factions in Tirap

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, May 27 (PTI): Arunachal Pradesh's Tirap district has been hit by a turf war between Khaplang (K) and Issac-Muviah (IM) factions of the NSCN that has left one insurgent dead.

According to police sources, a cadre of NSCN-K was killed in a shootout between the rival factions on Wednesday night at Chasa village.

Five days ago, a similar shootout took place at Luthong, a hamlet 15 kms away from Khonsa, the district headquarters on the way to Longding.

About a fortnight ago, a man was abducted by suspected underground elements from Khonsa township and he is believed to have been killed, the sources said.

Already at loggerheads, both the rival factions of the NSCN have been waging a war against each other to gain control over the district and its resources due to the porous borders with Myanmar.
