Security forces have covered the area and launched investigations with local authorities to catch the perpetrators of this deadly attack. The attack reportedly killed five soldiers and two civilians.
During his tenure in Mizoram state, Colonel Vipraf arrested several cases of drug trafficking, including the illegal transport of drugs along the India-Myanmar border. He is also committed to the restoration of the main insurgent groups. After being sent to Manipur, he defeated several drug traffickers and shared his first hit on one of the missions on July 27, where his team seized 377 grams of heroin.
Tripathi cabbage is very popular in the Manipur and Mizoram community where it has been served before. His family joined him on the occasion of Diwali in Manipur. When his vehicle was attacked by militants, his wife Anuja Tripathi and his 8-year-old son Abeer were with the police. His father, Subhash Tripathi, is a senior journalist in Raigarh, Chhattisgarh.
The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is believed to have been behind the attack, but no militant group claimed responsibility. This area is close to the border with Myanmar and there have been attacks of this type against military convoys. The state of Manipur also has a large number of radical organizations fighting for autonomy.
