The Indian intelligence agencies are suspecting China’s role in the recent attacks on security forces by terror outfits in North East region of the nation, reports claimed on Monday.
“China is conspiring to cause disturbance in North East by supporting the terror outfits,” reports quoted intelligence agencies’ sources.
The reports have come days after a terrorists attack at Army camp in Manipur killed 18 Indian soldiers. Besides this, suspected militants from Naga outfit NSCN-K on Sunday attacked a camp of the paramilitary Assam Rifles in Arunachal Pradesh, though no casualty was reported in it.
Meanwhile, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju has issued a statement today that the Central government is ‘serious’ on reacting to the recent attacks in the northeastern region, adding that the state police and central forces should work together to tackle the problem.
“We are taking the recent attacks by terrorist groups in Northeastern states very seriously. We are discussing how to tackle such problems. In Arunachal, the security forces repelled the attack and there were no causalities. The state police and Central forces have to work together to tackle the problem. We are discussing on how to bring peace in the region,” said Rijiju.
