    NSCN-K claims it killed 5-6 Para commandos inside Myanmar
    Note: Headline may not be correct, contradicts the official version in the article.


    GUWAHATI: Commandos of 12 Para exchanged a barrage of gunshots with militants of the SS Khaplang faction of National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-K) inside Myanmar in the wee hours of Friday.

    According to official sources, there was no casualty in the gunbattle that began at 3 am and lasted for about two hours.

    “The encounter took place beyond Thorloi, which is a Myanmar village two km from the Indian side of the international border in Nagaland’s Mon district. There was no casualty in the firefight,” Mon Superintendent of Police, Yangba Konyak, told Express.

    “I myself have seen the commandos when they returned. There were around 30 of them, which makes a platoon,” he said.

    “I don’t know of casualties, if any, on the side of NSCN-K,” he added.

    The NSCN-K claimed that it had eliminated five to six commandos in the incident.

    “The 12 Para commandos had intruded one and a half hour long walking distance into Myanmar. The commandos were first spotted by our army manning the forward security post and five to six commandos were gunned down,” the NSCN-K told Express in an email statement.

    “The advancing commandos were pinned down and the rest ran helter-skelter in commotion. The random and blank retaliation proved futile because of our well-defended higher position. The dispersed commandos tried to regroup to counter-attack but were pursued on their heels by our army forcing the retreat,” the statement said.

    The NSCN-K also claimed that the commandos, who survived the attack, had carried back the slain and injured colleagues on foot till the border. But the Mon district police chief said he had not seen the commandos carrying any bodies.

    Last year, the NSCN-K had ambushed an Army convoy in Manipur’s Chandel district, killing 18 personnel and injuring several others.

    Army seizes weapons after encounter on Myanmar border

    [​IMG]

    The Army seized three automatic weapons, one .12 bore gun and one pistol along with a large quantity of ammunition Friday morning after its soldiers laid an ambush on an infiltration route from Myanmar in Nagaland’s Mon district, an Army official said.

    The official confirmed that the ambush was laid on the Indian side of the international border, contrary to reports that it took place on the other side. No casualties were reported, he added.

    According to the official, the militants were intercepted but they escaped. Search operations in the area are continuing since. The militants are believed to be from NSCN (K), which reportedly has camps in Myanmar.

    Last June, the special forces of Army had carried out a cross-border raid at one such camp in Myanmar, killing an unknown number of NSCN(K) militants.

    1. Taliban seize district in Afghanistan's Kunduz province

    [​IMG]

    The Afghan Taliban captured a strategic district in the northern province of Kunduz on Saturday, forcing troops to retreat to the provincial capital which fell briefly to the insurgents last year, officials said. Fighting has sharply escalated in Afghanistan since the insurgency started spreading from its traditional strongholds in the south and east of the country to the once peaceful north.

    The militants seized the district of Khanabad, which connects Kunduz to Takhar and other northern provinces, in the early morning, with heavy fighting ongoing in several other districts, the officials said.

    “The Taliban attacked the district from different positions and we resisted for hours but we received no support. The district fell to the Taliban,” said Hayatullah Amiri, the Khanabad chief.

    Afghan officials in Kabul say a lack of ammunition and few reinforcements are the main reasons for the district’s fall to the Taliban, who are seeking to force the NATO-led coalition out of Afghanistan and bring in Islamic law.

    The fall of Khanabad comes only five days after the Taliban captured a district in neighbouring Baghlan province, seizing a number of government forces’ vehicles and ammunition.

    The provincial capital of Kunduz fell to the Taliban for the first time in September last year, one of the biggest victories for the militant group since they were ousted from power by US and coalition forces in late 2001.

    The brief capture of Kunduz city also underlined the growing strength of the Taliban and lack of security forces’ readiness, now fighting largely on their own since most international troops ended their combat mission in 2014.

    Hope that Indian agencies will use drones and other hitech equipments to deal with these Khaplang terrorist, rather than risking our paratroopers

    It would make more sense to use MBRL barrage or Jaguar dropped cluster bombs sited by couple of observers rather than risking SF Teams in jungle warfare in enemy territory

    Their cadre is very small comparable with Kashmir jihad which churn out thousands of terrorists in Paki madarsah and locally 100 ~ in India.

    NSCN cadre seems to be better equipped and organized like an Army, they have dress code, drills, training camps and regular supply of Arms and ammunition. They can compromise Air ops if they got their hands on Manpads which is not hard to get.


    Secondly the border mgmt in NE is not as effective as 3 tier surveillance in Kashmir.

    In case of Special Forces they are train to kill both uniform soldiers and " RATS"


    Secondly, no such technology exist with India if you are dreaming of US style Drone Strikes.

    India has such technology and secondly Special forces are not bakras they are trained to kill in special circumstances only. If you send them again and again there will be no surprise element in striking rats which exactly happened , do you know we lost atleast 4 to 5 para troopers in the current operation.
