The Army today inflicted “heavy casualties” on NSCN(K) cadre during an operation along the India–Myanmar border, the Eastern Command said today.
“Indian security forces” suffered no casualties, it said. “Heavy casualties reportedly inflicted on NSCN(K) cadre. No casualties suffered by Indian Security Forces,” the Eastern Command said in a tweet.
The Army's Eastern Command made clear it didn't cross the international border. The operation was triggered after a column of the Indian Army was attacked by insurgents.
The Army also stated that the operation was nothing like the Special Forces' cross-border raid carried out in 2015 to destroy Naga insurgent camps inside Myanmar.
