a joint operation was carried out by Tirap Police, Assam Rifles, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), IRBn and Special Task Force (STF) headed by SP Kardak Riba where the team recaptured the militant from a jungle in Tirap district with an Ak-47 Rifle.
He had escaped from jail on March 26 by snatching an AK-47 rifle from the jawan and firing upon him.
