Reports of casualties to Indian Army factually incorrect. Firefight occurred along Indo-Myanmar border at 0445 hrs today: Eastern Command. Heavy casualties reportedly inflicted on NSCN(K) cadre. No casualties suffered by Indian Security Forces: Eastern Command, Indian Army.
“Not a surgical strike” say officials sources on firefighting along Indo-Myanmar border; heavy casualties reportedly inflicted on NSCN. Own troops reacted swiftly & brought down heavy retaliatory fire on insurgents; insurgents then broke contact and fled the spot:Eastern Comand.
