Indian authorities including DC Tengnoupal district along with state police and the Assam Rifles intervene as the Mayanmarese authority did not take prior permission from the Indian side.
Interestingly the join venture comes a day after report about Indian Home Ministry  considering creation of a 29-battalion India-Myanmar Border Force from the corps of the Assam Rifles and the Indo-Tibetan Border Force to patrol India’s 1,643-km long mountainous border with Myanmar to curtail drugs and arms smuggling and also crimp the activities of Manipuri and Naga insurgents who take advantage of the porous border.
