Shillong: Nikson G Momin, the self-styled 'chairman' of Garo militant outfit Liberation Achik Elite Force (LAEF), was killed in an encounter with security forces in Meghalaya’s East Garo Hills district.

"A fierce encounter took place at Darugree at about 3 am in which Nikson alias Dilkam and his personal security officer Rakpat were killed by a special police team," Chief Minister Mukul Sangma said.

Two pistols, a grenade and some documents were found from the slain rebels, he said in the Assembly.

The group has been engaged in extortion and kidnappings in the Garo hills.
