New Delhi: In a significant development, the Myanmarese forces have begun carrying out operations against the anti-India insurgent groups operating from their soil.

“We have received inputs that Myanmarese forces have taken action against anti-India insurgent groups who have set up camps in Myanmar,” government sources told ANI.

“Indian agencies have also been in touch with Myanmarese forces for taking action against the groups like the terrorist group People’s Liberation Army which was involved in the killing of an Assam Rifles Colonel and his family some time ago,” they said.

The Indian military has also been in touch with Myanmar military and its government and recently handed over five anti-India insurgents to the Indian agencies who were brought in in a special aircraft, the sources added.

Details about the casualties caused to insurgent groups in the Myanmarese action are still awaited, the sources said.

According to local media in Manipur, Indian Para Special Forces on Thursday also conducted an operation in which it gunned down two cadres of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) at Senam village in Myanmar around 4.30 pm.

Security experts believe that many anti-India insurgents have regrouped in China’s borderlands with Myanmar which has led to s spike in militant attacks that have rocked the North East in the past few months. Many expect that these can increase with elections just around the corner and derail the peace process in Nagaland.

According to a PTI report, Naga splinter groups impatient with stalled talks as well as rebel Manipuri groups who have a stake in disrupting upcoming elections to the state assembly, are believed to be regrouping in the borderlands of China’s Yunnan province and Myanmar, taking advantage of the turmoil in the latter by using it as a transit corridor.

“There is a China angle to the resurgence of militancy. Several groups have people in China,” Maj Gen Bhabani S Das, former Inspector General of Assam Rifles, told PTI.
Groups such as the United Liberation Front of Assam (I), People’s Liberation Army of Manipur and splinter factions of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (K) who are against peace talks, are believed to be regrouping in the borderland.

Said Sanjiv Krishan Sood, retired additional director general of BSF, an expert on northeast militancy: “While the China factor cannot be ignored, we have to look at the fact that many Nagas have become restless because of unsettled issues in the peace talks, and Manipuri insurgents would like to interfere in the upcoming assembly polls.”

Recent terror attack incidents in Manipur are seen as part of the fireworks, which may accompany the democratic process. In one such incident, five personnel including an Assam Rifles Commanding Officer were killed in a terrorist attack in Manipur on November 13 last year.

The Commanding Officer (CO) of 46 Assam Rifles Colonel Viplav Tripathy, his wife and 8-year-old son and four soldiers were killed in an ambush by terrorists near the India-Myanmar border in Manipur. Four other soldiers sustained injuries in the attack in Churachandpur district in Manipur.

Earlier, India carried out a surgical strike against the anti-India insurgent groups involved in an ambush against a Dogra regiment battalion in which around 20 troops lost their lives.
