Bodo militant gunned down in Assam

Guwahati:  Security forces on Thursday gunned down a hardcore militant of Bodo insurgent outfit NDFB involved in the killing of Adivasis in Assam's Kokrajhar district, the military said.

Bhaigo Boro alias B. Bilaigra was shot dead by a joint team of Assam Police and the army deployed in Kokrajhar, defence spokesman Lt. Col. Suneet Newton said.

Some arms and ammunition, including one AK-56 rifle with magazine, 18 used cases, 32 rounds of ammunition and two hand grenades, were recovered during the operation.
