In a shocking incident, sitting National People’s Party (NPP) MLA from the Khonsa West Assembly constituency in Arunachal Pradesh, Tirong Aboh, and ten others were killed in a terror attack on Tuesday. They were shot dead by unknown assailants in the Bogapani area of Tirap district.

Aboh’s family members were also amongst the dead, including his son, while his personal security officer is in critical condition. According to preliminary reports, suspected NSCN (National Socialist Council of Nagaland) militants could be behind the terror attack, which took place at Bogapani village of Tirap district in Arunachal Pradesh.

According to Tirap deputy commissioner PN Thungon, Aboh was going to his constituency from Assam, along with civilians and police personnel, when the suspected militants opened fire at their vehicle at around 11.30 am.

Aboh was seeking re-election from Khonsa West Assembly seat in the assembly elections that took place along with the Lok Sabha elections. Voting for the assembly election has already taken place on 11th April and the results will be declared on May 23.

Union minister and Arunachal MP Kiren Rijiju said that strongest possible action will be taken against those responsible for such dastardly attack. He tweeted that he was shocked and saddened by the brutal attack.

Meanwhile, Meghalaya Chief Minister and NPP president Conrad K Sangma taking to Twitter strongly condemned the “brutal attack on Tirong Aboh and his family and his security personnel.”

Paying his condolences to the deceased MLA and his family, Sangma urged HM Rajnath Singh and PM Modi to take action against those responsible for such attack.

“The NPP is extremely shocked and saddened by the news of the death of its MLA Shri Tirong Aboh (Arunachal Pradesh) and his family. We condemn the brutal attack and urge @rajnathsingh and @PMOIndia to take action against those responsible for such attack,” he tweeted.

The attack comes days after another NPP worker and Tirong’s supporter were attacked by a suspected NSCN(IM) member at a village in Arunachal Pradesh. The suspected member of the Isak-Muivah faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM) assaulted Jaley Anna and his friend Kham Nai Abhi, both NPP workers, at Kheti village in Tirap district. Anna had succumbed to his injuries.
