Chinese agencies planning proxy war with India using Northeast militants?

Chinese agencies are in the lookout to destabilize the Northeast region and wage a proxy war with India by using militant groups active in the region. An Assam Tribune report said that this was revealed when a banned United Liberation Front of Asom (Independent) cadre laid down arms recently.

The report further said that the Assam police came to know about a plan of the militants to create trouble in Guwahati through a former ULFA cadre’s wife.

“Highly placed police sources told The Assam Tribune that the inputs available with the security agencies indicated that some Chinese agencies are desperate to launch a proxy war with India by engaging the militant groups of the region. Sources said the major militant groups of the region came into a common platform only after pressure from the Chinese agencies and they have started operating together,” the Assam Tribune report by R Dutta Choudhury said.

The report mentioned about militants aiming to target security forces in the region. Based on intelligence inputs, the Indian Army led to a successful operation in Mon district of Nagaland on the night of June 6-7, in which three hardcore militants were killed. One Army Major and a civilian were also killed during the encounter.
