Police sources said that the commando team led SP in-charge (railway) Krishnatombi, additional SP Herojit and OC of special commando Vivekananda carried out an operation in a village located around 5 km to the south of Tamenglong district headquarters on Monday night after receiving information of presence of a transit camp of the NSCN-IM.

During the operation, the commando team confiscated NSCN-IM flags, uniforms and some documents from two houses, which are used as transit camps of the outfit.

However, the IM cadres in the transit camp were found already escaped taking advantage of the darkness before the CDO team reached there.

The state forces stationed in Tamenglong district are continuing their operation to hunt down NSCN-IM cadres, who might be involved in the assassination of Athuan Abonmai.
