A fierce gun battle took place between unknown militant groups at 11 KV Power Sub-station gate of Indo-Myanmar Border Town Moreh, in the early hours of Friday.

Bullet marks are found in the entrance gate of the electricity campus and front of the electricity building. Also bullet marks are found in the gate of trade centre, almirah and building wall. Blood stains are found just outside electricity gate, then on the main road between trade centre & electricity and entry road towards Elora Hotels. Around 250-300 empty cases are found in and around electricity campus, and also splinter of Blast Hand Grenade were also found.
Morning situation report is normal. The incident is suspected to be between Kuki Militant group’s and another militant group. Source said that one cadre of a particular group sustain injury in the gunfight.
One Live Hand Grenade and One Pistol with 7 round unused bullet recovered during Search Operation conducted at the spot by Police and Commando of Moreh Police Station. Staff of 11 KV Power Sub-station feel unsecured as they are one who was in the Campus during the encounter. For today the Staff will not open their Office but they will do their duty if any emergency comes. Some staff left the Sub-station Campus and Went to IB of Electricity Department to safeguard themselves.
It may be mention that an RPG modified as IED was planted at the Bridge few days back. If such acts occurred frequently in Indo-Myanmar Border Town Moreh than the Vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi about Act East Policy and the Business with other foreign countries will not bear fruits. And also it easily shows that the Border guarding force Assam Rifle is not fit to guard the Indo-Myanmar Border. Question arises what were the Assam Rifles doing at the time of the incident, who are posted to safeguard the Indo-Myanmar border, as such things happens frequently in the border town.
