Guwahati/Dimapur/Layshi, July 28: Around 100 soldiers of Myanmarese Army have set up camps at Taga in Myanmar on Friday after Tatmadaw attacked three camps of NSCN(K) on Wednesday and forced the cadres of the NSCN(K) retreat to a safer place.
According to local sources, the NSCN(K) Headquarter located at Taga is still intact and hasn’t been abandoned but the situation is tense in the area. The initial attack, however, had taken place in some remote camps far away from the headquarter of NSCN(K) located at Taga, sources added. Unconfirmed reports state that some other insurgent groups of Northeast India taking shelter alongside the NSCN(K) camps might have been affected in the attack which was mainly targeted against the NSCN(K).
Meanwhile, local NGOs are trying their best to initiate a dialogue between the Tatmadaw and the NSCN(K) senior functionaries so that no untoward incidents happen in the region. Meetings with the Ceasefire Monitoring Committee are going on. Top leaders of the NSCN(K) are meanwhile hiding in undisclosed locations fearing that the Myanmarese Army might arrest them and hand them over to India.
Sources further added that the attack on the NSCN(K) camps in Myanmar has taken place after the Indian Govt pressurized the Myanmarese counterpart to take action against the NSCN(K) camps located inside Myanmar for many years now. The attack is being seen as an end to the five-year-long ceasefire between the Myanmar Army and the NSCN(K).~Time8
