In a big success, security forces gunned down two militants of United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) and People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in an encounter along the Kharsang Miao Road in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh.
One militant of ULFA was from Assam while the other one of PLA was from Manipur. Both terror organizations are active in Assam and Manipur respectively. The ULFA is a bigger terror organization of Assam whose main motive is to liberate Assam. PLA is also a terror organization founded by N. Bisheshwar Singh in 1978 and is a rebel group whose motive is to separate independent socialist state of Manipur.
The militant outfits have faced a major blow in recent times as most of their leaders surrendered or were arrested. They have active bases in Bangladesh and Myanmar as they failed to get a major support from local people.
