GUWAHATI: Naga insurgent outfit NSCN-K along with fellow insurgent groups from Manipur,  KYKL and KCP operating on the India-Myanmar border, accorded a “warm victory reception” to their “elite strike unit” that had carried out the deadly ambush on  6 Dogra Regiment in Manipur’s Chandel, killing 18 personnel, including a JCO.

In a joint news release on Tuesday, the outfits said the elite strike unit, which “vanquished the enemy forces”, was accorded a “warm victory reception” by KCP president K Laba Meitei, KYKL chairman N Oken and NSCN-K ‘Finance Minister’ Starson Lamkang.

“Though overwhelmed by praises for exceptional gallantry exhibited by the fighters, the event was rather sombre for the loss of lives of the unit’s ‘commander’, Maj. Rajanglung of NSCN-K and Cpl Keisham Rajen of KYKL.

“Maj Rajang was not only valiant and tactical in battles, but also prudent and judicious politically. His acumen for combat plan could ensure easy success and his tactical guidelines for retreat could save the rest of his team even after his sudden demise. His death is an irreparable loss to the NSCN-K and Naga national movement.

“Cpl. Amit was friendly to all and jolly to a fault. His commitment to the revolutionary struggle and cheerfulness in times of hardships could elevate the sagging morale of everybody,” the release said. The elite strike unit saluted the slain comrades and the gathering observed two-minute silence in honour of them.
