Four NSCN-R cadres killed in Arunachal

Tirap: Four cadres of the Naga militant group Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagalim-Reformation (NSCN-R) were gunned down in Arunachal Pradesh's Tirap district early on Thursday, the Assam Rifles (AR) said.
Two AK-47 assault rifles and a pistol were recovered from the slain militants.
An AR spokesman said the gunfight occurred at the remote Kheti village. The four were allegedly involved in extortion, arms dealing and drug peddling. 
"Assam Rifles troopers cordoned off the area on Wednesday night after a tip-off. One of the three columns came under heavy firing as it approached the militants camp, forcing the troopers to retaliate," the spokesman said. In the ensuing gun battle, two militants were killed. 
"Later, two more militants were killed during the operation," he said.
