In a major success, a hardcore NSCN (R) insurgent was shot down by the Indian Army after a firefight last November 30 in the Shallang District of Changlang in Arunachal Pradesh.
Security forces, operating on specific intelligence about the presence of armed cadres in the district, launched a rapid operation in the area.
The troops came under fire from the cadres during search operations and one insurgent was killed in retaliatory fire, who was later identified as Major Akham Chang, NSCN (R) operational commander in Changlang District.
The slain insurgent recovered one AK series rifle with huge amounts of ammunition and another battle like stores
