One Junior Commanding Officer (JCO), and five jawans of the 29 Assam Rifles were martyred in Manipur's Chandel district.

The jawans lost their lives in an ambush that was carried out by militants near the Myanmar border area. The militants were reportedly heavily armed when they unleashed the attacks on the Assam Rifles.

It was only last year that eighteen jawans were ambushed in Manipur's Chandel district, in the month of November.
