A couple of days back there were concrete intelligence inputs regarding the building up of hideouts along the border. Source told OneIndia that the hideouts had begun to mushroom since the past week and there was a concrete plan by the NSCN-K cadres to carry out a strike in India.

      Army officials had been keeping a track on these hideouts and also the movements of the cadres and struck this morning. Severe damage and heavy casualty has been inflicted and many may have been pushed back, sources also say.

      This is the second such strike that India has carried out along the same border. In June 2015, the Army had targeted the NSCN-K group days after it had killed 18 Indian soldiers in Manipur.
