GUWAHATI: Three National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) militants were killed in two separate encounters in Assam on Friday, police sources said.

An NDFB militant was killed at Podumpkhuri in the Jalukbari area of the city in an encounter. The police recovered a .32 pistol from him and suspect that he entered Guwahati to carry out subversive activities, the sources said.

Two other NDFB (anti-talk Ranjan Daimary faction) insurgents were killed in an encounter with a joint police and army team in lower Assam’s Chirang district, the sources added.— PTI
