According to information, the village guards (VGs) and Gaon Burha recovered 75 empty cases of bullets during spot verification.

Holes were also seen on the CGI sheets of a house.

It has been alleged that the anti-talk faction of the NSCN carried out the attack on the security force personnel to derail the ongoing Naga peace process which is heading towards a conclusion.

According to media reports, the alert Assam Rifles upon attack on its camp retaliated promptly and opened fire at the militants.

A media report quoted defence sources as saying: “The insurgents ran away after coming under immediate and accurate fire from Assam Rifles troops. No casualties or damage to the troops has been reported.”

According to defence officials, the action of the militant group is the fallout of desperation due to relentless operations being carried out by Assam Rifles troops and apprehension of its top leaders like SS Maj Gen Yanghang alias Mopa and SS Kilonser Imti Ao.

Yanghang was nabbed on June 21 last from Aboi-Mon road in Nagaland.  On the same day, a team of Assam Rifles also apprehended four other members of the Yung Aung faction of the NSCN (K).
