Fierce gunbattle in Rongapahar

A heavy gun battle seems to have pressed no less panic button along the Assam-Nagaland interstate border in Karbi Anglong district on Saturday.

The fierce exchange of firing took place atop the Rongapahar hills in the afternoon. According to information, a group of miscreants from Nagaland started indiscriminate firing at the policemen guarding the border outpost.

The policemen also retaliated with firing. The gunbattle lasted for nearly two hours. The Naga miscreants later were believed to have fled from the spot. There is no report of any casualty in the encounter.
