Agartala, Feb 25: Tribal guerillas struck on the eve of the Village Committee elections in Tripura and killed an Assam Rifles (AR) jawan in an ambuse at Sankhola in West district today (Feb 25, 2006).

Official sources said that the militants of outlawed All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF) waylaid an AR patrol party which was on a special operation to flush out the extremists.

The ATTF rebels fired from the AK series rifles and hurled grenades killing an AR jawan on the spot.

Senior police and AR officials rushed to the spot and launched a massive combing operation to track down the militants.

The Border Security Force has also been alerted so that the militants could not cross over to their hideouts in Bangladesh.
