A number of United Liberation Front of Asom cadres and their supporters have been arrested in Arunachal Pradesh during joint operations by the army, paramilitary forces and police, Director General of Police Amod Kanth said on Wednesday.

Kanth told PTI that some areas in forests often visited by insurgents have been identified and neutralised. He did not give the exact number of militants nabbed so far.

He said the operations by the army, paramilitary forces and police forces of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh were on mainly in lower Dibang valley and parts of Lohit and Changlang districts.

Arunachal Pradesh police has provided extra enforcements for the operations at the request of the army.

The operations were launched following the massacre of 70 migrant workers in Assam.
