    Tribal rebels in India's Tripura kill 3 gas firm workers

    More violence in India's separatist racked North eastern states.

    Tribal rebels in Tripura kill 3 gas firm workers

    Tribal rebels in Tripura on Tuesday ambushed workers of a state-run gas firm on their way to surveying a site, killing three of them, police said. "The rebels first lobbed grenades and then opened indiscriminate fire on employees of GAIL who were proceeding to a survey site," police officer Nepal Das said referring to the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL). The attack at Buduniapara, 60 km east of Agartala, triggered a gun battle between police escorting the workers and the rebels but there were no casualties in the fighting. Police said two of the workers were killed instantly and the third died in hospital. Police blamed the outlawed National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) for the attack.
