A soldier of Assam Rifles was reportedly killed while nine others were left injured after a convoy was ambushed at Khaunsa in Arunachal Pradesh today.

According to an Indian Express report, Search operations are on.

Wing Commander SS Birdi, spokesperson of Army's Eastern Command, said the incident occurred at 2 pm today.

Further details are awaited.

Last year, three soldiers were killed and three others wounded when suspected militants ambushed an army convoy in Arunachal Pradesh's Tirap district.

Tirap and Changlang districts of Arunachal Pradesh, that borders Myanmar, have been a stronghold of the NSCN factions and the route is also frequented by the anti-talk faction of United Liberation Front of Asom to sneak over to Myanmar, where these groups have camps.
