Two NSCN-IM cadres were killed in a fight with suspected NSCN-Khaplang ultras in Nagaland's Mon district on Wednesday.

On receiving information that about 20 NSCN-IM cadres had put up in a house at police colony in Tizit subdivision of Mon district, a group of suspected Khaplang ultras fired at them killing two NSCN(IM) cadres on the spot, official sources said.

The two were identified as self-styled Captain Asang Tangkhul and Lieutenant Huketu Sema.

After the incident, over 200 NSCN-IM men armed with sophisticated weapons went to the spot, cordoned off the area and launched a manhunt to track the killers, the sources said.

A few days ago NSCN-IM had killed an ULFA cadre and kidnapped three others and later handed them to the police. The NSCN(IM) faction suspected Wednesday's incident to be a retaliation of that.
