NPP candidate, 9 others died in Tirap bombing

Itanagar: At least 10 people including an assembly poll candidates from NPP were believed to have died when suspected NSCN(K) rebels exploded a powerful bomb in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh on Monday.

The incident took place around 11.30 when Khonsa West MLA and BJP candidate Tirang Aboh accompanied by his personnel assistant and security guards were on a trip. As Aboh and his convoy reach Birdoria area the Naga rebels who were waiting on the roadside ambushed the team where the entire team members were said to have died.

Security forces reached the spit and cordoned off the entire area to nab the culprits. 

The NPP is extremely shocked and saddened by the news of the death of its MLA Shri Tirong Aboh (Arunachal Pradesh) and his family. We condemn the brutal attack and urge @rajnathsingh and @PMOIndia to take action against those responsible for such attack.
