The NSCN(K) on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 termed the reports of it suffering massive casualties in and around Myanmar as baseless and said neither their camp was attacked nor the group did not suffer any casualty. The outfit has challenged the Indian Army to display the bodies of cadres killed in the attack.
NSCN(K) – in a press statement – said, “the attack was completely false and stated that the reports were efforts by the Indian Army to salvage their reputation. The outfit also said, while the Indian army claimed it launched attacks on the camps, all rank and file of the NSCN(K) were peacefully paying paying their respects at the funeral services of their comrades who died in the June 04, 2015 ambush incident”.
“The topography shown on TVs are all nonexistent. We do not have a well maintained footpath or the pine garden that the Indian army was supposedly doing mock drill”, also added by NSCN(K) press release.
Manipur based militant outfit Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF) has refuted the news being spread by Indian National Media, Indian Govt Officials and Army. RPF’s secretary publicity Roben Khuman – in a press statement to media here on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 – said that there was no casualty on their side during the Tuesday, June 09, 2015 morning attack that took place around 07AM at one of their mobile post in Ukhrul sector of Indo-Myanmar border.
The army team fled away from the scene when the outfit retaliated. Later a patrolling team of outfit has also detected blood stain where the Indian army took position during the incident besides recovering a loaded magazine. The RPF also released picture of ammunition left by Indian Army and now under custody of the RPF.
“The top officials of Indian Occupational Force(IOF) who are claiming themselves to be capable of launching cross-border strike have failed to tell the truth and hence they have misled the Indian people. They are indulging in cheap and false propaganda,” also said in the press release.
