Security Forces under the aegis of HQ IGAR (North) eliminated three hardcore underground cadres of a joint group of NSCN(K) and ULFA(I) in general area of Tizit, Mon district of Nagaland.
The incident occurred in the night of 06 June 17, when Security Forces based on an input launched an operation. The Security Forces were in the process of establishing a mobile check post when the armed terrorists travelling in an autorickshaw sped past and on being pursued opened fire on Security Forces. In the ensuing firefight which took place on a pitch dark night three terrorists were neutralized and autorickshaw driver also succumbed.
The operation was led by Major David Manlun of 164 TA NAGA (H&H) who made the supreme sacrifice while gallantly leading from front while fiercely fighting the terrorists. Alongwith him three jawans also sustained splinter injuries who are now in a stable condition. The operations are in progress.
