Karbi Anglong: A Superintendent of Police and his PSO was killed in encounter with terrorists in Assam's Karbi Anglong district on Thursday evening.

SP Nitya Nanda Goswami of Hamren police district was leading an operation against the insurgent outfit in remote Rongthang forest area where they came face to face with a large group of the ultras who opened fire on them last night, IGP Law and Order A P Rout told PTI on Friday

The police team retaliated and in the ensuing encounter, Goswami and his personal security guard were killed, Rout said.

The SP, his additional SP and other police personnel had split into three groups to launch the operation against the ultras with Goswami heading a team of five policemen, he said.

The bodies of Goswami and his PSO were recovered on Friday morning, he said.

The IGP described the SP's operation as a "gallant action".

The KPLT, formed in 2010, has been demanding creation of a Hemprek Kanthim (self-ruled homeland) for the Karbi people.

It is a breakaway anti-talks faction of the ethnic insurgent Karbi Longri N.C. Hills Liberation Front (KLNLF).

Karbi Anglong has witnessed severe tension in the past in its demand of separate statehood.
