In a clash between the two rival groups of the NSCN, at least six NSCN (K) cadres were killed at Nagaland's Zunheboto town, police said on Monday.
Intermitant exchange of fire took place at Amiphoto colony of the town on Sunday, killing six members of the Khaplang faction after both groups came closer with sophisticated weapons.
One civilian also sustained bullet injuries during the clash, they said.
NSCN (I-M) activists also occupied the residence of NSCN (K) General Secretary Kitovi Zhimomi when his family members went to attend the church services during morning hours.
The factions blamed each other for initiating the attack even as people of Zunheboto appealed to the armed acdres to vacate populated areas and confine themselves in their respective designated camps.
