A wanted militant of the United Liberation Front of Assam (Independent) has been killed in an encounter with security forces in the state’s Udalguri district, officials said on Friday.

A PTI report said that acting on intelligence inputs, a joint operation was launched by the army and police in the district where the militant - identified as Ramesh Bora - was gunned down in an exchange of fire with the security forces on Thursday, a defence spokesperson said.

Bora was the deputy of another hardcore ULFA(I) militant Rajan Deka and the self-styled area commander for the outfit in Udalgudi and Darrang districts, he said.

An ANI report said the army recovered a grenade, a 9mm pistol, six 9mm live rounds and approximately Rs 6 lakh in Indian currency from the encounter site.

The army cordoned off the area and launched a search operation.
