A bid to carry out attack by militants on the Kaladan transport project between India and Myanmar was thwarted by armies of both countries.
According to reports, the coordinated operation by the Indian and Myanmar armies started on February 17 after days of preparation. The operation was finally over on March 2.
Reports said that Arakan Army members were planning to infiltrate into Indian territory. Indian Army personnel did not move into Myanmar territory.
Apart from personnel from the Assam rifles, members of other units of the Army and surveillance equipment were also moved well in advance after several meetings with the armed forces of Myanmar.
All the camps of the Arakan Army, including makeshift ones, were destroyed in the attack.
