Security beefed up in Arunachal Pradesh

ITANAGAR: The Arunachal Pradesh Police have tightened security measures to maintain law and order in three troubled districts of Changlang, Tirap and Longding following the May 3 ambush by NSCN (K) in Nagaland's Mon district where eight security personnel were killed, according to reports.

"We have taken all precautionary measures including intelligence sharing, erecting check posts and deployment of additional forces in all vulnerable areas of the districts bordering Nagaland," DGP S Nithianandam said.

The DGP said that security was also strengthened throughout the state to maintain law and order.

On April 2, three Army personnel were killed and four injured when suspected NSCN militants ambushed their vehicle in Arunachal Pradesh's Tirap district bordering Nagaland.

The NSCN-K pulled out of its 14-year ceasefire agreement with the government on March 27 last.
