New Delhi: Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju will visit Assam tomorrow to take stock of the security situation there following killing of a Superintendent of Police and a policeman by a militant outfit.  

Rijiju will visit Assam following a directive of Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who reviewed the security situation in the insurgency-hit north eastern state.  “I have asked MoS Home Kiren Rijiju and JS (Joint Secretary), MHA to visit Karbi Anglong in Assam tomorrow,” Singh tweeted.

The Karbi Peoples' Liberation Tigers (KPLT) militants killed a Superintendent of Police and another policeman in Assam's Karbi Anglong district and their bodies were found this morning.

“Today we lost two brave policemen during police action against KPLT in Karbi Anglong region of Assam. I salute them for their sacrifice,” the Home Minister said.
