Rampant extortion has affected the economic development of the North Eastern Region of the country particularly, Manipur, Nagaland and Assam, according to a analysis report of the Centre on the internal security scenario of the region. The analysis report which was tabled at the recently concluded Chief Ministers’ Conference on Internal Security at New Delhi, further mentioned that most of the militant outfits operating in the north eastern region justify their existence on the strength of aspirations of their respective community/ tribes/clan etc. Inter-tribal and factional violence constituted a large portion of violence taking place in the region, while noting that economic development of the region has suffered tremendously due to the menace of rampant extortion. Assam, Manipur and Nagaland are focus states where much of the violence in the region has been reported. Manipur is the most worrisome state in the region with daily reports of killings and other crimes. In Nagaland, law and order problem continues to be a cause of concern. Assam also suffers from sporadic acts of violence with the number of militant-terrorists on the increase, the report said. Arunachal Pradesh has witnessed low intensity violence in some pockets whereas the situation in Mizoram and Sikkim remains largely peaceful, the analysis report said. Mention may be made that the Chief Ministers’ Conference on Internal Security held in the week of August apart from discussing on Creation of Quick Response Team (QRTs) and Special Intervention Units (SIU) at the police station level, strengthening of State Special Branches (SSBs) and creation of separate cadre for intelligence, creation of Special Cells within CID or Economic Offences Wings for Combating FICN menace, among others.
