New Delhi: The armies of India and Myanmar carried out a three-week-long coordinated operation from May 16 in their respective border areas, targeting several militant groups operating in Manipur, Nagaland and Assam, news agency PTI quoted defence sources as saying on Sunday.

The first phase of “Operation Sunrise” was conducted three months ago along the Indo-Myanmar border, during which a number of camps of the North-east-based militant groups were busted.

The sources said during “Operation Sunrise 2”, the two armies coordinated with each other to bust camps of militant outfits, including the Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (KLO), the NSCN (Khaplang), the United Liberation Front of Assam (I) and the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB).

They said at least six dozen militants belonging to these groups were nabbed and several of their camps destroyed during the operation.

The sources said the two sides might launch the third phase of the operation, depending on intelligence inputs and the ground situation.
