GNLA rebel killed in encounter in Assam



Goalpara: A GNLA insurgent was killed in an encounter during an army and police operation in Assam's Goalpara district.

Three cadres of the Garo National Liberation Front from neighbouring Meghalaya on motorcycles were asked to stop by the security forces at Dokapara, under Lakhipur police station, last night, police sources said.

The GNLA cadres instead of stopping fired at the security forces who retaliated with one of the militants killed and the other two escaping, the sources said.

A 7.65-mm pistol with seven rounds of ammunition, two magazines and a motorcycle were seized.
