Security forces have decided to go all out against insurgents who killed five Assam Rifles (AR) personnel Monday in Manipur’s Chandel district bordering Myanmar. “It’s an unfortunate incident and should not have happened. We are planning a combing operation from today, tomorrow to flush out the militants,” DGAR, Lt. General KS Yadava said. The AR, he said, with the help of other security agencies under the unified command would jointly carry out the operations in Manipur to nab those killers. The unified command of three corps commanders is being headed by Manipur, chief minister Ibobi Singh. Last Monday, the proscribed UNLF militants ambushed a patrol party at Old Samtal in Chandel district bordering Myanmar killing five AR personnel including a Major and a Captain. Stating that the fight against insurgents could only be scaled down “militarily” to a certain level, Yadava said the civil administration has to take over and build confidence in the society to make it violence free. “Similarly, the civil society role in Manipur has been positive. The civil society should give maximum support to security agencies in terms of inputs and intelligence gathering,” the DGAR said. Eulogizing the occasional protests of civil society against the “over-reaction” of security agencies, Yadava said, “It’s a good thing that the civil societies don’t spare us (Assam Rifles) or the Army at times of over-reaction. It’s good for a healthy sign for Indian democracy.”
