Security forces yesterday combed Kherbari village and its adjoining areas in Golaghat district along the Assam-Nagaland boundary for a missing AK-47 rifle. The AK-47 was snatched by the villagers along with a 9mm pistol from a group of armymen from the 2/11 Gorkha regiment on Monday night in a case of mistaken identity. The villagers had also attacked the team, killing jawan Achal Kumar Limbu and injuring four others, including Captain Vikram Singh, mistaking them for Naga militants, The Telegraph reported. The villagers handed over a 9mm pistol to the police but an AK-47 rifle is still missing. Golaghat SP Madan Chetia said additional SP (headquarters) B.B. Gogoi has been directed to conduct a detail inquiry into the incident.
