New Delhi, Aug 28: After Pakistan and China, is it time for eastern neighbours Myanmar to intrude into the Indian territory? According to a Times Now report, the Myanmar Army has intruded into the eastern state of Manipur on August 22 and set up temporary camps at the Holenphai village in the state.
Reports said that the Assam Rifles did not issue any official statement confirming the intrusion. Manipur Governor Ashwini Kumar had visited the area to take stock of the situation. Manipur Congress MP Rishang Keishing said he wasn't sure about the governor's visit.
Observers felt the act of intrusion occurred at a time when the Manipur government was seriously considering on fencing the India-Myanmar border area in the state.
India has been threatened by regular intrusion by armies of Pakistan and China along the Line of Control and Line of Actual Control in the western and northern sides. Now, reports of fresh intrusion by yet another country will pose new challenges for New Delhi.
