Rifles snatched away in Kokrajhar

In yet another bizarre incident, suspected NDFB-S rebels snatched INSAS rifles from the security forces in Kokrajhar on Tuesday forcing a combing operation in the entire area.

The incident took place at Khalashi area near Saralbangha river in the afternoon where the jawans of the ecological task force was on plantation duty.

A group of militants who outnumbered the security forces reached the spot and took away at least 35 INSAS rifles at gunpoint. Then they disappeared from the spot without any attack.

The ecological task force has been looking after the plantation work with the help of BTC forest department and 15 Dogra Regiment for the last two years. Combing operation is on to nab the rebels.
