Guwahati: Indian Army commandos have taken action against the Khaplang faction of the terrorist outfit National Socialist Council of Nagaland. The militants ‘ group opposes the Nagaland peace agreement and often attacks Indian security forces in other north east states including Nagaland.
According to security persons, the khaplang group terrorists cross the border after attacking Indian Jawans and go to Myanmar so that Indian troops cannot take action against them. In addition, there are similar training camps in the Border of Myanmar as the training camps have been built by terrorists in Pakistan occupied Kashmir. A few days ago, the militants of the same Khaplang faction attacked the Indian troops. In response, Indian troops today took major action against them. The soldiers of sam rifles and nagaland police personnel have busted an illegal camp of the militant National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khango) in the remote Hocefu area in Zunhaboto district. The police have destroyed the camp by burning it. On the other hand, several items including uniforms, ration and tents were also recovered from the camp. The recovered items were later handed over to the Aghonto police station in Zunhabboto district.
Meanwhile, in another successful operation, assam rifles in a joint operation with Nagaland police has arrested an armed cadre of NNC GDRN (NA) from Signal Angami (Dimapur district). One point 32 mm pistol and several rounds of ammunition were also recovered from the arrested rebel. The police are now questioning the arrested cadre about their colleagues and the shivers. The Indian Army official said that the terrorist group of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland has refused to join any kind of peace talks. He attacks Indian soldiers and non-Naga people as before. The group talks about Nagaland apart from India. Most of the leaders of the group live outside Nagaland and from there they continue to conduct terrorist activities across the state.
On the other hand, Indian Army chief Manoj Mukund Narwane on Friday acknowledged the role played by the Myanmar army in helping to stop the insurgency in the north-east. He said there has been “encouraging improvement” in the internal security situation in the north-east.
Narwane’s remarks at a seminar on developing security challenges in the north-east of the country came at a time when the dissolution between Indian and Chinese troops is going on in the Pangong Tso region of eastern Ladakh. At a seminar in New Delhi, he said, large parts of Mizoram, Tripura, Meghalaya and Assam were practically free from insurgency and the level of violence was going down considerably. “Relentless operations and proactive government policies by the security forces have laid the foundations, the favorable external environment with Myanmar and Bangladesh has attacked the roots of insurgent organizations,” the army chief added.

Mention that the Myanmar army has been taken to power after arresting several leaders, including the country’s supreme leader Aung San Suu Kyi. After the arrest of leaders in Myanmar in the early hours of Monday on February 1, 2021, the country’s army TV channel said there would be an emergency in the country for a year. The soldiers are on the streets in the main city of Myanmar’s capital Nepitava and Yangon. In Myanmar, there was tension between the government and the army over the outcome of the November election. Sui Chi’s party, the National League for Democracy party, won the election by a huge margin, but the army claims the election was fraudulent. Let me tell you that the Home Ministry of India has clarified that India has no complaints in the army regime by the army chief in Myanmar. The North East Secretary of the Union Home Ministry has said that India is looking at the political situation in Myanmar from afar. If need be, India will definitely take steps and give its comments.
