Itanagar, Apr 07: Two hideouts of NSCN (IM) established deep inside a forest area located near Dadam village in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh were destroyed by Assam Rifles(AR) troops recently.

The 23 AR troops had conducted an extensive search and destroy operation based on specific input of activities of NSCN(IM) cadres in the area.

According to official sources, the troops learnt that IM cadres had infiltrated into Tirap district from eastern Nagaland and were forcibly collecting taxes from the locals. On reaching the area, the troops were informed by the villagers that the activities of NSCN cadre had increased in the last two months and the extremists had forced them to construct thatched huts in the nearby jungle from where they could operate in the nearby villages.

Acting on the information, the troops of AR acted vigorously and on locating the two camps destroyed these. Sentry posts, rifle racks and certain items of daily use found in the camp were also destroyed.

The destruction of these camps has delivered a severe blow to the activities of NSCN(IM) in Tirap district, since the ultras have been primarily indulging in forcible tax collections and extortion in the area, sources added.
