A member of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-IM was apprehended on Saturday by the army in Arunachal Pradesh's Longding district, a defence official said.
Longhee Wangsa, the "sergeant" of NSCN-IM was apprehended this evening based on specific intelligence about presence of a cadre trying to terrorise and carry out extortion in Gibo Colony, said defence spokesperson Chiranjeet Konwer.
The army has been carrying out aggressive operations in the south Arunachal Pradesh area and this development has struck a blow to the extortion activities being carried out by the underground cadres of the group in the area.
