This is the first time that civilians have died in terror attack in this area of the district. The location is an extremely remote village around 50 km from Churachandpur.
No terrorist militant organization has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. But it is suspected that People’s Liberation Army based in Manipur is behind the attack.
Strongly condemn the cowardly attack on a convoy of 46 AR which has reportedly killed few personnel including the CO & his family at CCpur today. The State forces & Para military are already on their job to track down the militants. The perpetrators will be brought to justice.
