    PRC is meddling in NE again. This is a signal to the Government. We need to tackle this immediately.

    RIP. Check who did this. It's high time to change the lack luster approach of the past while dealing with terrorism especially minority induced secular terrorism, also it's high time NSCN all factions are wiped out with all other terrorist organizations!

    Using rocket-propelled grenades(RPG) and automatic weapons, a group of insurgents on Thursday ambushed a military convoy killing at least 20 army personnel in the worst such attack in recent years. Eleven armymen were also injured in the ambush, an Army spokesman said.

    A team of 6 Dogra Regiment was on a road opening patrol (ROP) as part of its daily routine along Tengnoupal-New Samtal road, about 80 km from Imphal, when it was attacked by an unidentified insurgent outfit first with a powerful Improvised Explosive Device (IED), a police official said in Imphal.

    After the IED blast, the insurgents resorted to heavy firing at the convoy of four Army vehicles with RPGs and automatic weapons, Army sources said in Delhi. “20 armymen were killed and 11 injured in the attack,” Army spokesman Col Rohan Anand said in Delhi. A suspected insurgent was also killed, police said.

    The attack occurred at 9 am (EDs correct) when the convoy reached a place between Paralong and Charong villages. More details are awaited. Manipur Home Secretary J Suresh Babu suspected the involvement of Manipur rebel outfit Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) in the deadly attack.

    “This seems to be the work of PLA, with suspected support by the ‘KYKL’ group also. We are still waiting for more inputs to come in,” he added. Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL) is a Meitei revolutionary organization in Manipur.

    A reinforcement party of the security forces was rushed to the spot for combing operation to nab the militants, police said.

    Army now suspects that KYKL was directly involved in the ambush.

    Remember that yesterday there was a total shutdown as people were protesting against the killing of a woman allegedly by soldiers.

    RIP, this is difficult area, one can see vehicle coming from kms away. I have been to that area. Very difficult to come alive out of well laid ambush. Specially in mountains.

    It is the failure of Center to integrate NE. We talk of Act East, look east, trans asian highway/railway, tourism, employment and so on but nothing has been done on ground. Every month there is a news regarding attacks on NE students in Delhi and elsewhere.
    It is high time Govt must end all talks with NE militant outfits and initiate action to wipe them out and implement economic activities at the same time.

    Terror effected NE states have several tribal groups and anything which looks "outsider" will be treated with fear and aggression by each one of them. These groups do not just kill the government forces, if given a chance they will kill off one another. In fact that is what they did until the British forces arrived in the region. Presence of Government forces has ensured that there have been no real blood feuds or "skull collection" campaigns.

    You must visit the terror effected NE states for once to experience how racist these people are towards the "outsiders". Here "outsider" includes a person belonging to another tribe.

    There is just one solution: Wipe the armed groups out with extreme prejudice like we once did. These groups are now getting weapons and political backing from China, we need to nip this new coalition in bud.

    They are saying the action starts tomorrow. i don't think only military action is an answer to this problem. some level of diplomacy is required as well.

    the whole of north east is treated like a no go, even people in this region are humiliated in the central india etc.
    no wonder these people are not integrating into the indian society.

    AFSPA will not go, and time to block the Indo Myanmar border. This will now stop these @ss people sneaking into Myanmar and will also stop Rohingaya Muslims entering India.

    Seriously This is too heavy loss for us. This is not accepted. I am just thinking about their families.

    Rest in Peace Brave heart souls!!!
