NEW DELHI (TIP): Days after special forces of the Indian Army carried out cross-border strikes on three insurgent camps located in Myanmar, the neighbouring country has shifted six camps manned by various insurgent groups to Chin province, where the border between the two nations is heavily guarded, said a senior government official. The camps — which belong to various insurgent groups like Indian PLA, UNLF, KYKL, MNRF — were reportedly located in and around Tamu area in northern Myanmar, near the borders of Nagaland and Manipur.
“The camps have been relocated to the Chin province, which is near the Mizoram border. The chances of insurgent groups crossing over to India from Mizoram side is unlikely as the border here is properly fenced and guarded, unlike the border with Nagaland and Manipur,” said the official. “We have been informed by authorities in Myanmar that they have shifted the camps to the Chin province as part of their commitment to help India fight the insurgent groups,” said a senior government official.
