Army chief general Dalbir Singh Suhag will take stock of the security situation in the Northeast during his day-long visit to the region on Friday, which comes soon after the militant group NSCN-K's attack on Wednesday.

Suhag will visit the Eastern Army Command where he will be given a detailed briefing by top officials from the military as well as the civilians authorities on the security situation of the region.

His visit comes close on the heels of two NSCN-K terrorists being killed in an encounter in Nagaland.

Two NSCN-K militants were killed and another was injured in an encounter with security forces at Avangkhu in Phek district of Nagaland on Wednesday night.

A patrol of security forces was fired upon by the NSCN(K) militants and in retaliatory fire, two cadres were killed and one was injured last night.

The security forces had gone to the area on reports of forced recruitment of school boys and kidnappings from Avangkhu and Pokhungri villages by the militants.
