In the series of intense operations on underground outfits, delivering a major blow to NSCN (IM), joint team of Assam Rifles and Army under the aegis of DAO division conducted successful operations in Motongsa village resulting in destruction of three major NSCN (IM) camps and a logistic dump.
Based on specific intelligence about presence of cadres trying to terrorize and attempting extortion in and around Motongsa village, Jairampur battalion of Assam Rifles in coordination with army launched a massive operation in Motongsa. During search of the thickly vegetated area the party located and destroyed three NSCN (IM) camps and a logistic base. The camps were being used by the outfit as base of operations and had allowed the group to increase their influence in the area.
