Nagaland: A noteworthy gunbattle occurred between Army troops and associated National Socialist Council with Nagaland (Khaplang) aggressors along the India-Myanmar fringe, in the Mon locale of Nagaland, on Friday. Unsubstantiated media reports said no less than 30 Indian paratroopers had directed a “surgical strike” inside Myanmar, and cited the NSCN-K as guaranteeing that it had executed “five to six” commandos.
In any case, Army sources dismiss the reports and said the gunbattle occurred inside Indian region. The savage experience occurred close Throilu town in Mon locale on “our side of the outskirt” at around 5.30am, said Army sources. “Our troops had laid a trap along a known invasion course. After the resulting gunfight, the aggressors fled once more into Myanmar.
They deserted a few weapons. There were no setbacks on our side,” said a source. In June a year ago, days after aggressors had killed 18 Army troopers, Indian exceptional powers had directed a surgical military strike over the Myanmar fringe to incur “critical losses” on the gatherings behind that trap, NSCN (K) and Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL).
Warriors of Assam Rifles and NSCN(K) units ex changed overwhelming discharge at around 4am close Chenmoho in Nagaland’s Mon locale, which imparts its eastern outskirt to Myanmar, state police said on Friday. “There was substantial ex change of discharge between NSCN (K) units and Assam Rifles officers. The episode was accounted for at a young hour in the morning.
Starting now, no setbacks have been accounted for,” Yangba Konyak, SP (Mon), was cited as saying by news organizations. Sources said senior authorities had achieved the spot for stock-taking. NSCN(K) is a banned activist outfit which last March annulled a 14-year-old truce with the Center.
