The Indian Army and Assam Police have launched their "biggest operation" against Bodo militant outfit NDFB, particularly in places close to the international border with Bhutan, a top police official said on Saturday.
The pregnant wife of a suspected overground worker of NDFB(S) has alleged that she was raped by two Army personnel in Kokrajhar but the army denied the charge on Tuesday and also filed a counter FIR against the rebel group for trying to "malign its image".
An NDFB(S) militant, suspected to have been involved in the massacre of adivasis in December last year, was killed in an encounter with security forces at Amteka in Chirang district of Assam on Tuesday.
The NIA has filed a chargesheet in a special court here against 10 NDFB (Songbijit) militants who were allegedly involved in the killing of Adivasis in Assam's Kokrajhar district in December last year.
In bad news for security forces, Bodo insurgent group NDFB(S) is believed to have aligned with UNLFW, an umbrella organisation of terror groups in the north-east, responsible for the recent ambush in Manipur that killed 18 soldiers.
