Three armed cadres of the newly-formed United People’s Liberation Front (UPLF) were killed in encounter with a joint team of Assam Police and Assam Rifles at Hatikhuli under Langting PS in Dima Hasao district in Assam in the wee hours today.
Police recovered one AK-56 rifle, one 7.65 pistol, one Chinese grenade and a cache of ammunition from the slain militants.
A relatively new outfit that was formed only in 2013, the UPLF had gunned down Karbi Anglong SP Nityananda Gowami in June this year. It was only last week that seven UPLF militants had surrendered to the police in the adjoining Karbi Anglong district.
