 Assam Rifles, through its PRO has described as “malicious allegations” made against it by the NSCN(I-M) in the local media, over the AR post at Doyapur. PRO accused the NSCN(I-M) of making the allegation “against a legitimate Assam Rifles post at Doyapur” carrying out its bona fide task from the location in existence for over two years. PRO said the allegation “raises the question of the ulterior motives of the complainants”. 

AR clarified that its post at Doyapur plays a key role in providing a secure environment as per the wishes of the local populace and the government while maintaining that Doyapur is situated around 6 kms from Hebron camp and “far beyond what is stipulated in the Cease Fire Ground Rules.”

AR claimed that various initiatives by the post, also in conjunction with the civil administration, had added value to the lives of the residents of Doyapur and neighbouring villages.

Further, it advised the NSCN (I-M) “ to refrain from their constant attempts directed at discrediting security forces” for having a free hand in running “its unlawful activities in the area. 

AR said it is mandated “to carry out operations, to ensure peace and order” and prevent any violations of CFGR by any faction and would continue to do so which were always conducted with COVID protocols in place. 

AR also said it has been carrying out numerous programmes towards helping the populace in combating the pandemic and therefore, accusing it of “wilfully jeopardising the people is preposterous and misleading.”

AR said it remained committed “to being sentinels of peace and tranquillity in the region” and would continue to operate against any faction which vitiated the security and environment.
