Three Army jawans were killed in an ambush by Naga militants in Tirap district in Arunachal Pradesh last night. The attack left four others injured.

According to reports, a defence spokesperson said that the militants attacked a convoy of four Army vehicles and opened fire indiscriminately killing three on the spot.

The injured were rushed to the nearby hospital.

The personnel of the 4 Rajput Regiment were on their way to the camp at Longding after a night halt at Khonsa, about 530 km east of Itanagar.

"They were coming from Tinsukia in neighbouring Assam in four vehicles. Most of the personnel, who were on leave, were returning from their home state," Singla said.

The injured have been rushed to Army hospital.

However, there were no casualties on the other side, the SP said.

They said it is suspected NSCN (K) was behind the ambush.

The NSCN faction led by S S Khaplang had recently called off the ceasefire with the government.
