The Indian Army has said that it attacked the hideouts of Naga militants along the Myanmar border in the early hours of Wednesday. In a statement, the army said that insurgents had opened fire on troops at the Indo-Myanmar border, after which the army retaliated.
NSCN-K cadres are believed to have suffered heavy casualties in the ‘firefight’ that started at around 4:45 AM and lasted for a couple of hours. The Indian Army said none of its personnel were hurt in the operation, contradicting reports that had suggested otherwise.
