Kohima firing culprit held in B'lore

The National Investigating Agency claimed to have arrested a dreaded NSCN(K) militant from Bangalore on Friday who is supposed to be the main culprit of the attack on Assam Rifles in Kohima early this year.

Identified as Atoshe Chopey, the Naga insurgent was captured during a joint raid of Bangalore Police at a lodge in the morning. After detaining and interrogating for a few hours, he was produced before a special court in the city.

NIA team is preparing for his transit remand to shift him to Dimapur for proper investigation of the incident where four Assam Rifles jawans were injured at the Indira Gandhi Stadium in Kohima March 26 this year

According to NIA, Chopey hails from Zunheboto district of Nagaland and during preliminary interrogation, he has confessed his involvement in the incident.
