One NDFB-Songbijit militant was killed and another injured at Kalamati in Assam's Sonitpur district on Saturday in an encounter with a joint team of police and Assam Rifles, a Defence officer said.

The joint team led by the Army's Red Horns Division noticed the movement of two suspected NDFB (S) cadres and on being challenged they fired towards the Security Forces and tried to run away, the officer said.

In retaliation the security forces fired and one of the fleeing militants was killed and another injured in the encounter, the sources said. One 7.65mm pistol, two rounds of ammunition and documents were recovered from them.

Another NDFB (S) ultra was apprehended along with a hand grenade from Village Amlaiguri in Udalguri district, the sources added.
