Guwahati, Sept. 30 (ANI): Security forces in Assam have arrested four hardcore militants hailing from different outfits and based in the state’s Chirang and Dima Hasao Districts.
Chirang District’s Superintendent of Police Ranjan Bhuyan said that a joint team of the police and the army apprehended the self-styled deputy commanding officer of the banned National Democratic Front of Bodoland-Songbijit faction, Udaychal Daimary.
