Ajit Doval to visit Myanmar

New Delhi: Days after India’s successful counter-attack on militants, responsible for killing of 18 Indian soldiers in Myanmar, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is slated for a two-day visit to the country from June 18 .

During his visit, Doval is expected to focus on identifying leaders of the insurgent group NSCN-Khaplang who are operating in Myanmar.

Reports suggest that the Indian Army’s offensive in Myanmar wasn’t as successful as was initially made out to be. Only seven bodies of insurgents have been recovered so far and at least 40 members of the NSCN-K, including a senior leader, are believed to have fled the camp before the Indian Army made its strike.

Army had claimed that 20 militants were killed in the offensive on two camps in Myanmar.

Meanwhile on Thursday, the government had sounded high security alert across Northeastern part of the country following reports that some NSCN-K terrorists have sneaked into Indian Territory to carry out a revenge attack.

According to sources, around 20 terrorists belonging to NSCN-K, PLA, ULFA and other groups like the newly-formed United National Liberation Front of West South East Asia crossed the Indo-Myanmar border with the intention of revenge attacks after Tuesday’s surgical strike by the Army.
