Kohima:  Six suspected militants of the armed rebel group NSCN-K were killed by the Army in an encounter in Nagaland’s Tuensang district today.

Security forces had intensified their operation against the outfit, which abrogated the ceasefire agreement with the central government in March and attacked an Army convoy in Manipur in June, killing 18 soldiers and injuring 11 others.

Four days later, India’s Special Forces went across the border and destroyed two militant camps in Myanmar, killing as many as 50 rebels.

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a peace accord with the NSCN-IM faction, in hope to end the state’s longstanding insurgency.
