“Two cadres have been declared dead after an exchange of fire between Police/Security forces and terrorists,” he tweeted.

Singh added that two pistols and grenades were recovered from the militants.

In a video released earlier this week, a group of men announced that a new outfit by the name of United Liberation of Bodoland has been formed, and a separate state for the Bodos happens to be their primary demand from the government.
