The Myanmar army has reportedly taken over the physical control of NSCN-K headquarters and driving out Northeast insurgents from Taga area of Myanmar.

Over 500 security personnel of Myanmar army dismantled the hideouts of Indian insurgent groups and taken over the physical control of NSCN-K headquarters last week, Deccan Chronicle reported.

Myanmar army has taken this step after NSCN-K refused to follow the order of the Myanmar army to drive out all the non-citizen terrorists and armed rebels from their camps, the newspaper quoted an unnamed security source as saying.

Myanmar army has also reportedly a huge cache of arms and ammunition from the insurgents who are loitering in the forest areas for shelter.

Admitting that Myanmar army has not resorted to aggressive military action on these insurgents, security sources said that they have been told to go back to India instead of trying to set up fresh shelter points in Myanmar.

Myanmar army in the first week of February launched offensive to flush out Northeast rebel groups–ULFA-I, NSCN-K, NDFB-S and KLO—who have bases in the Burmese territory.

According to Army sources, on February 2, gunbattle took place between ULFA (I) and Myanmar Army in which one cadre of the banned outfit was killed and another one was nabbed by the Tatmadaw, the official name of the armed forces of Burma.

According to reports, six members of the NSCN-K were also arrested by Myanmar Army during the operations.
