Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag on Friday rushed to Imphal as security forces intensified their operations in the state following the deadly ambush by insurgents that killed 18 soldiers and injured 11 others on Thursday. Suhag is being briefed by the 3 Corps commanders and top police officials, army sources said. They said that a detailed operation plan is being worked out for sustained and targeted operations against the insurgents. The focus currently is to send back bodies of the martyred soldiers and sanitise the area completely, the sources said. In the worst such attack in two decades, insurgents had on Thursday ambushed a military convoy in Manipur’s Chandel district killing at least 18 army personnel and injuring 11 others. A team of 6 Dogra Regiment was on a road opening patrol (ROP) as part of its daily routine along Tengnoupal-New Samtal road, about 80 km from Imphal, when it was attacked by an unidentified insurgent outfit first with a powerful improvised explosive device (IED). After the IED blast, the insurgents resorted to heavy firing at the convoy of four army vehicles with RPGs and automatic weapons, Army sources said.
Central government issued an all out offensive order to flush out militants from Manipur. The order was issued after the discussion with the home minister Rajnath Singh, defense minister Manohar Parrikar and national security advisor Ajit Doval. Indo Myanmar border has been closed to prevent the militants from escaping to neighbouring Myanmar.

Central government never took any quick responsive action against indian army (an terrorist to people of North East ) when there was a many rape of North east girls by indian army,extra-judicial killings, fake encounters, human right abuses.they don’t value the life of people of northeast and denied the actual human rights as entertained by the people of other states.
Never took any quick remedial action when there were prolong highway blockade resulting in scarcity of food and skyrocketing of oils prices and essential items whereby masses of northeast were greatly affected in their normal life and so on…
Instead they are intriguing communal conflicts among innocent and illiterate aboriginals and spewing the secret communal flare.
But when some of the army (a terrorist to the eyes of northeast people )dies of recklessness, the center swiftly formulated a quick and heavy offensive task to encounter those handful of revolutionary people. Haha haha its very funny to hear…what it clearly shows is that their attitudes towards our people, policy formations and politics are imperialistic in design and spare no cocession of human rights as offer to the mayangs.
