Two Kuki tribal militants were seriously wounded among cadres of two factions at Moreh, the border town on Friday night, a delayed report said.

The cadres belong to the factions of the Kuki National Liberation Front. They are signatories to the suspension of operations which means that they cannot resort to insurgency related activities including use of firearms.

The injured militants were rushed inside the 9 Assam Rifles camp at Moreh for treatment. Tension is mounting as fresh encounter may take place in this border town. The government is concerned over the increasing violation of the ground rules with violence and kidnappings for extracting ransom.
