Acting on intelligence inputs given by the armed men in the area, a special police team and troops from Assam's 19 Dogra regiment raided the hideouts at Rari last night, district SP Ramesh Singh said. At around 4:40 am today, the militants opened

indiscriminate fire after spotting the security forces, with two killed militants killed in the retaliatory attack, he said.

Their identity is yet to be established, but it is suspected that they belong to the A'chik Matgrik Elite Force (AMEF), he said. A 9 mm pistol with two live rounds, two empty cases, a 7.65 mm pistol with three live rounds, a mobile phone, three
