Guwahati: Assam Rifles Colonel along with wife and eight-year-old son, and four soldiers lost their lives in a terrorist ambush near the border with Myanmar in Manipur on Saturday.

One of the deadliest terror attacks in the region in recent times happened at 11 am in Churachandpur district of Manipur.

The 46 Assam Rifles’ Commanding Officer, Colonel Viplav Tripathi, had visited a forward camp and was on his way back when his convoy was ambushed on Saturday.

“Five soldiers including Colonel Viplav Tripathi, Commanding Officer of 46 Assam Rifles, have made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty. The family of the Commanding Officer – wife and child – also lost their lives. DG and all ranks of Assam Rifles offer condolences to the brave soldiers and families,” the Assam Rifles said via a statement.

Manipur’s terrorist group People’s Liberation Army (PLA), is believed to be the conspirator in this case, though no group has come forward claiming responsibility yet, sources said.
