Heavily armed militants started firing indiscriminately at the camp in Tirap district in early hours of Sunday, prompting retaliatory firing by the para-military Assam Rifles personnel, an Assam Rifles spokesman said.

The militants fled after retaliation by the Assam Rifles, he said.

The attack came four days after a group of terrorists, including National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang militants, ambushed an army convoy in Manipur, killing 18 army men.

The NSCN-K in March abrogated the ceasefire accord with the central government and since then has been targeting security forces in Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Manipur. (IANS)
