IAF Shows Its Strength By Airlifting Fuel Laden Tankers To crisis-Hit Manipur

Published on 25 January, 2017 at 10:11 pm By

Giving much needed relief to the northeastern state of Manipur which has been virtually paralyzed due to an indefinite blockade, some 96,000 liters of fuel has reached the state in the past 24 hours.

Armed militants had ambushed convoys of tankers and trucks carrying fuel to Manipur on Assam-Manipur highway. Suspected Naga insurgents attacked around 300 trucks and oil tankers being escorted by CRPF and SSB from Jiribam in Assam to Imphal.
