At least four soldiers were injured after suspected NSCN (IM) militants ambushed an army convoy near the Assam-Manipur border Wednesday, police said.

At least four soldiers received bullet injuries during the incident in Dima Hasao district in Assam, said Superintendent of Police Mugdha Jyoti Mahanta.

The militants first triggered an IED blast and then fired indiscriminately, he said.

The incident took place at near Mahur near the Assam-Manipur border.

"We suspect the hands of NSCN-IM militants behind the incident," said Mahanta.

Mahanta said the attack took place when the army convoy was passing through the area for patrolling.

Haflong, the headquarters of Dima Hasao, is over 300 km from here.
