Kokrajhar (Assam), Mar. 25 (ANI): The Army on Friday nabbed three Kamtapur Liberation Organization (KLO) terrorists, who were on their way for training in Myanmar, from Assam’s Kokrajhar District.
While one of the terrorists was nabbed from Maktaigaon, the other two were apprehended from Maurigaon in Kokrajhar.
The arrested terrorists, identified as Ranjay Barman, Hitesh Roy and Shibhu Prasad, are also known to be involved in extortion, arms peddling and providing logistic support to the banned militant outfit.
Two rifles, one pistol and several rounds of ammunition were also recovered from the arrested terrorists.
In a joint operation with Assam Police, the Army had earlier this month, neutralized a KLO militant Shiljan area of Kokrajhar.
The Army also reportedly claimed that the slain militant was deputy commander-in-chief of the KLO who had received training in Myanmar. (ANI)
