Jaish-e-Mohammad has once again tried to spoil the atmosphere of the country. Assuming that the Indian Army has reviewed the current security situation in the north-east at an operational group meeting held in Tezpur on Tuesday, against terror. The steering group met under the chairmanship of Lt Gen Shantanu Dayal, GOC, Gajraj Corps. The meeting was attended by additional Chief Secretary of Assam, Jishnu Barua, state DGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahant and other important army officials, state administration and representatives of paramilitary forces including BSF, CRPF and SSB.

A senior army official told the correspondent that “the smooth and efficient operation of the mechanism has resulted in greater coordination between the administration and the security forces, resulting in an overall improvement in the security situation in the northeast.” A senior army official also said that the Indian Army’s intelligence agency has informed the Government that Pakistan and China are trying to spread unrest in India together. According to a report by the intelligence agency, the Indian Army will have to make a strict effort to thwart the ISI conspiracy.

After the agreement between the Government of India and Myanmar, the army took a major action on terrorist hideouts in Myanmar. Although many of the army’s stories have been discussed, there are 5 valour, which has left the terror outfits in a state of 5.

Stepping up its crackdown against northeast Indian insurgents, myanmar army has launched “Operation Sunrise-3” to crack down on various insurgent groups gathered along the Indo-Myanmar border. It has now been revealed that myanmar army is launching operations against various rebel groups in the northeast operating on the country’s soil. It is no secret that many separatist organizations are carrying out insurgencies from across the Myanmar border which is largely vulnerable. The National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K), led by Yung Aung, is strengthening its position inside Myanmar. It is mentioned that earlier this month, Indian Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla and Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Narwane went on a two-day visit to Myanmar as far as anti-insurgency ops are concerned.

The leaders of the two countries had held talks about joint action against groups of insurgents operating in northeast India. The Myanmar army’s ‘Operation Sunrise-3’ is mainly due to the latest input of insurgent groups reinforcing positions in northern Chin state and other regions. Security agencies of both the countries believe that insurgent groups on the Indo-Myanmar border are plotting infiltration from India via Mizoram border. Myanmar is the third neighbouring country to take action against insurgents in the Indian frontier region at the request of New Delhi. Although Myanmar soil has been used mainly by northeastern rebels from Nagaland and Manipur, it was the first time that myanmar army (Tatmadaw) had acted at India’s request and handed over to militants from the northeast. Military sources, who were devastated by Operation Sunrise-3, said the Myanmar army had been conducting operations against terrorist groups since January.

The Myanmar Army’s action cooperated with India’s 15 infantry and Assam Rifles Battalion and helped in the elimination of terrorist groups. Indian forces also helped through drones in the 1,643 km long border with Myanmar. The Myanmar Army’s action has helped india’s 15 infantry and Assam Rifles Battalion and help in eliminating terrorist groups. It needs to be mentioned here that in February last year, Tamastav took control of the NSCN (K) headquarters in The Sing region following the death of his supremo SS Khaplang. This gave a clear signal that Myanmar would not allow its soil to be used for the purposes of insurgency.
