In an another diplomatic feat by the Indian government against terrorism, the Myanmarese Army has taken physical control of the the terror outfit National Socialist Council of Nagaland - Khaplang (NSCN-K) and is driving out its non-Myanmarese terrorists from Taga area of the country, reports Deccan Chronicle.
The report cited authoritative security sources as saying that more than 500 personnel of the Myanmarese Army dismantled the hideouts of Indian insurgent groups and took physical control of the NSCN-K headquarters last week. They informed that the step was taken after NSCN-K refused to follow Myanmarese Army’s order to drive out all non-citizen terrorists and armed rebels from their camps.
The move by the Army has scattered Indian insurgents groups that were operating from Taga. The Army has also confiscated a large number of arms and ammunitions from the insurgents, who are lingering in the forest areas, sources said, as per the report.
These insurgents, who have not been subjected to aggressive military action yet, have been reportedly told to return to India instead of trying to set up fresh shelter points in Myanmar.
According to the report, though the exact number of such terrorists is yet to be ascertained, Indian security agencies believe that more than 2,000 cadres of active terror groups are still present in the neighbouring country.
