NSCN (IM) camp busted in Manipur

IMPHAL | May 28, 2019:

An undesignated camp of the militant group, NSCN (IM), was busted on May 25 by security forces at Todaijang village in Manipur.

"Acting on reports regarding NSCN (IM) cadres camping in village Todaijang and carrying out illegal extortion from the innocent villagers, Security Forces launched a well coordinated operation on the night of 24 May 2019. However, seeing the troops advancing toward their camp, the cadres fled leaving huge amount of arms, ammunition, tentages, uniform and other war like stores in the said camp" informed a Security Force personnel.

 "It is evident that NSCN (IM) is not serious about the Ceasefire Agreement as it continues to target innocent villagers/civilians and is trying to extend its reach outside the 'Taken Note of Camps'  in Manipur," said Defence officials.

 "Villagers also informed that NSCN (IM) is trying to falsely blame Security Forces for destruction of huts and troubling locals in the village. One of the village heads appealed to everyone, to not fall prey to the propaganda by NSCN (IM) and provide full support to Security Forces," added the officials.

The Security Forces are working closely in synergy with police, intelligence agencies, civil administration and the local populace to identify such incidents, said the official adding that immediate action is being taken to identify and dismantle such undesignated NSCN (IM) camps in Manipur and to stop atrocities/ illegal activities of these cadres.
