Guwahati: Security forces in Assam have shot dead a Bodo militant who was to carry out recruitment drives for his outfit, an official said Tuesday.

Guwahati-based defence spokesperson Lt Col Suneet Newton said a huge cache of arms and ammunition were recovered from the slain militant -- identified as Urga of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) who underwent training in Myanmar.

He was killed during a joint operation by the army`s Red Horns division and Assam Police in the Prabatjhora reserve forest in Kokrajhar district Monday night.

The militant was looking to carry out recruitment drives, particularly after the arrest of many NDFB cadres, the spokesperson said.
