To become an important partner in development and improve their relationship, the Myanmar army has launched a campaign against anti-India insurgent groups operating from its soil. Government sources told ANI that they have received information that Myanmar security forces have taken action against anti-India insurgent groups setting up camps in Myanmar. The terrorist group People's Liberation Army, which was involved in the killing of a colonel of Assam Rifles and his family sometime back, is also likely to be acted upon soon.
Five rebels were brought to India by special aircraft
Sources said that the Indian Army is also in touch with the military government of Myanmar in this regard and they had recently handed over five anti-India insurgents to Indian agencies, who were brought in a special aircraft. Sources said that the extent of damage caused to the insurgent groups in Myanmar's action is not yet fully known.
Last year five soldiers lost their lives
Five soldiers, including the commanding officer of the Assam Rifles, were made victims of a terrorist attack in Manipur on November 13 last year. Colonel Biplab Tripathi, Commanding Officer (CO) of Assam Rifles, his wife and 8-year-old son lost their lives in this attack. The attack was carried out by an ambush by terrorists near the Indo-Myanmar border. Earlier, India had conducted surgical strikes against anti-India insurgent groups involved in an ambush against the Dogra Regiment battalion, in which around 20 soldiers lost their lives.
