Guwahati, Aug 18 : The troops of Assam Rifles had apprehended a cadre of ZUF militant group in Assam's Cachar district.
Based on a specific information, troops from Assam Rifles launched a search operation on Saturday in the area of Namdailong in Cachar district of South Assam.
During the operation one ZUF cadre was apprehended and a pistol with ammunition were recovered from the insurgent.
