In a significant development, Myanmarese forces are 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 government in this regard and they had recently handed over five anti-India insurgents to the Indian agencies who were brought in in a special aircraft, the sources said.
Details about the casualties caused to insurgent groups in the Myanmarese action are still awaited, the sources said.
