Naga outfits virtually run a parallel government & collect "taxes" - This was something i read some years back. Might still be the case in far off or remote areas may be urban centers as well.

Very bad day.
Very Possible. Either civilians were switched, Or used as shields (which I earlier mentioned) Or NSCN(K) themselves killed them in order to blame the Forces.

Problem with GoI and Indian Military is the failure to communicate. They get quickly bogged down under pressure and issues senseless statements to media.

This happened very well within our Borders
My theory is that, A Local source of Assam Rifles was compromised, either by Insurgent groups themselves, or by ((((((foreign agencies)))))) I'm using that term very carefully here

This was a military failure, if political Groups are using it for brownie points going forward, you can be sure it was (((((foreign agencies)))))

It is about time Forces reduce the reliance on HUMINT and increase ELINT/SIGINT/Drone surveillance


Edit: If it flares out of control, expect another sAarJikal StrAaiK and Media Mahotsav by Mudi Ji for Local Consumption
Incidents like these happen
US had accurate intelligence,yet civilians in Afghanistan got killed by drone strike

Non-Hindu regions only.

Almost all of India's internal conflicts are to do with religion except Naxalism.
Wonder what do you have to say about ULFA and it's rank and files or the Meiti Insurgents running hell in Manipur,many of whom are Bishnupriya Manipuri ?

Conflict in North East is more of ethnic than religious one......

Don't draw conclusions with a very few facts that has come out.
Similarly, in Kashmir when civilians in Maruti 800 (or Alto?) were shot, when they jumped multiple check posts, many things were speculated.
No soldier can be prosecuted just to placate the civilian or press/ media if he has followed SOP and acted in a bona-fide manner.

The beach sands of Tamil Nadu and Kerala are rich in several heavy minerals such as ilmenite, rutile, leucoxene, garnet, sillimanite, zircon and monazite. These minerals are used in several industries from steel and electronics to jewellery and ceramics. Monazite, however, contains Thorium, a nuclear fuel of much interest.

It was illegal to mine these rare earth heavy minerals until recently; the only entity allowed to do so was the government owned Indian Rare Earths Limited (IERL). In October 1998, the government of India opened sand mining to private companies. This would be done on the basis of two licenses, one to mine the sand and another to handle nuclear materials.

The Thorium scam allegations make four claims:

1) A private company is exporting Thorium rich sand illegally.

2) Between 2002 and 2012, some tonnes of Monazite has gone missing.

3) The Monazite has not been returned by the private company to the DAE after mining for other minerals.

4) Only a gentleman’s agreement requires the private company to inform the government about how much Monazite they posses.


About the Conversion angle, Iam not sure.

Highlights -
  • Intel suggested the presence of NSCN (KY) and ULFA militants.
  • SF Team laid the Ambush (probably 21 PARA)
  • The surveillance team gave a go-ahead as villagers were carrying hunting rifles.
  • Initially, 6 people were killed in the shootout by ambush team
  • While SF was waiting for police to arrive, 200 angry locals attacked 14 soldiers with machetes
  • Soldiers fired in self-defense and killed 7-8 more locals.
  • Soldiers were severely injured in the attack and one succumbed to the injury.

It is almost, whatever can go wrong, went wrong. This has to be the next feather for our blunders cap after our Mi-17 shootdown.

Secondly, the amount of thorium that has allegedly been exported – 235,000 tonnes – is quite simply nonsensical. If India had 100% of its present energy output, about 200 GW, supplied entirely by thorium reactors, the amount alleged to have gone missing in the scam could power India at present rates for some 700 years. To give another example, the amount of thorium exported in the scam could power the entire world for 36 years! A final statistic to underscore the absurdity of the allegation is the annual consumption of thorium by the United States – four tonnes. With world consumption around ten tonnes, the amount exported from India illegally represents 23,500 years of global supplies. IREL itself exports barely five tonnes of monazite per annum.
