India Says There Is Evidence That China Is Backing Naga Terrorists

Published on 23 May, 2016 at 8:39 pm By

NSCN-K, the Khaplang faction of the terrorist organization National Socialist Council of Nagaland, is being assisted by China in its activities against India.

In 2015, while the Modi government reached a landmark peace deal with the NSCN-IM faction, the NSCN-K continued with violence in India’s northeastern states including an attack on Indian Army forces in Manipur in the first week of June that killed 18 soldiers.

Now the Centre says that the NSCN-K was able to carry on with its activities because of “foreign assistance”. In a report published by The Hindu, it has also been revealed that Nagaland was the only state among the northeastern states that did not seek an outright ban on the terror group but a “peaceful solution”.

Following the Centre’s move, a tribunal set up early in 2016 banned the organization under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) for five years.

It was the Home Ministry that told the tribunal of the Chinese hand behind NSCN-K activities. According to The Hindu, the Ministry said that Chinese urged various northeastern groups to meet in April 2015 in Myanmar.

In fact, NSCN-K has set up many camps across Myanmar. The group alone has a cadre strength of 700-800 militants and is also supported by various smaller terrorist outfits in the northeast.

The outfit is able to raise funds through various means including wide-scale drug trade across the Indo-Myanmar border.

With its arsenal of sophisticated weapons, the NSCN-K is able to carry out deadly attacks on Indian security forces and then escape back into their hideouts in Myanmar.

On June 9, 2015, in order to avenge the killing of our troops, Indian Army conducted a surgical strike deep inside Myanmar on the hideouts of the NSCN-K neutralizing many terrorists.
