Ulfa, NSCN(K) In Panic As Myanmar Army Closes In

Ulfa and NSCN (Khaplang) militants have pressed the panic button and are planning to shift their camps in Myanmar amid reports of a crackdown by the Myanmarese army on Indian rebel outfits holed up there.

The NSCN (K) claimed that about 400 Myanmarese soldiers have moved into the area where its headquarters is located.

The outfit said its chairman , S S Khaplang, was safe. Ulfa, whose military chief Paresh Baruah shifted to Myanmar after Bangladesh launched a similar offensive in late 2009, has asked the NSCN (K) fighters to move to safer places.
