The Indian Army has busted a major camp of the separatist Kanglei Yawol Kann Lup (KYKL) in an interior area of Churachandpur district in Indian state Manipur bordering Myanmar and Mizoram. Official sources said the Army had detected at least 120 militant camps in interior parts of the Churachandpur as well as Chandel and Bishenpur districts using Remote Sensing Satellite System.
Army personnel destroyed a KYKL camp at Behiang near Manipur-Myanmar border on Sunday. The militants, however, escaped through thick jungles. The camp comprised 32 huts, two training grounds, a firing range and a play field. The Army had earlier destroyed a major camp of the separatist People’s Liberation Army at Theigotang on November 6 and 7 in Churachandpur district. Most of the camps of militant outfits at Singhat in the district had been earlier destroyed in the three-month-old counter-insurgency operation, particularly in the three districts of Churachandpur, Chandel and Bishenpur.
