Kohima: Indian security forces have nabbed more than 1,000 Naga rebels, since the ghastly attack on the Indian Army convoy by the banned outfit (NSCN-K) that killed 18 soldiers in Manipur two years ago, the report said.

According to sources, 531 underground cadres of NSCN-K and 542 over ground workers were arrested in Manipur and Nagaland following intensive operations which began after the June 4, 2015 attack on the Army personnel.

Meanwhile, a Home Ministry official said that the operations are continuing even now and security forces have been able to restrict the NSCN-K’s movement to a great extent.

The official reportedly claimed that it was for the first time in a decade that such a large number of Naga militants were arrested in just two years.

During the last two years, the security forces have also exterminated 34 NSCN-K militants and recovered 571 sophisticated arms from arrested cadres of the group.

After the June 2015 attack, the Indian Army had carried out a major surgical strike on the camps of NSCN-K, killing some militants and destroying the camps.
