ITANAGAR: Two NSCN(K) cadres, including a Myanmar national, were killed while another was seriously injured in an IED blast at Romantic Point, 8 km from Wakka town, in Londing district bordering Myanmar on Tuesday.

Three cadres of the outfit were planting the IEDs when the incident took place at around 3 AM, a spokesman at the state police headquarters said.

"The cadres had already planted two IEDs and when they tried to plant the third one, it went off," Kanubari MLA Ganriel D Wangsu informed when contacted.

The site of the blast was located at Longding-Wakka road, the sources said adding, the road is in hilly terrain.
However, the personal identity of the cadres, one Myanmarese national and two local youths are yet to be known.

This is the second incident after a group of 35 NSCN (K) rebels fired upon an Assam Rifles camp at remote Lazu in Tirap district on June 7 last.

No casualty was reported in that shootout.
