DIMAPUR (ASSAM): Acting on a credible input, the Assam Rifles arrested cadres and over ground workers (OGW) of National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) (NSCN-IM) from Doyapur village of Dimapur district.

The search operation launched by the Assam Rifles along with a state police representative on May 24 led to the arrest of SS Leacy Hehuto, Mr Chingni, OGW (employed in the house of SS Lieutenant Colonel Vikato) and Mrs Kheliho, wife of SS Leacy Samuel, an Assam Rifles statement said.
