Assam Rifles neutralised two United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) militants and apprehended six others in India’s north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh in an operation on Wednesday.

The operation was launched by troops of Assam Rifles in the dense forest of Changlang district in Arunachal Pradesh around 1.30 pm.

This apart, six other militants including one woman were apprehended by the security agencies.
