AR jawans injured in gunfight

|

Suspected NSCN(K) cadres carried out standoff attack on Assam Rifles post at Dan, Nagaland from across the Indo-Myanmar Border on the afternoon of September 11. Severe exchange of fire between the troops and cadres ensued wherein the alert troops foiled the attack.

During the retaliation, one AR jawan (Rfn/GD) sustained gunshot wound and was immediately administered first aid and evacuated  to Rangapahar MH. He is currently under medical treatment.

The other Jawan sustained a splinter injury in the hand and was administered first aid on the spot. However, the exact number of cadres involved in the incident is not ascertained due to heavy rainfall and poor visibility. They further fled deeper into Myanmar jungles.

Unit sources confirmed injury to few cadres and reinforcement was called in later during the evening.
