The proscribed outfit Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF) condoled the death of two cadres of its armed wing People’s Liberation Army (PLA) during an attack on a “temporary camp” of PLA, located along the border area between Chandel District of Manipur and Myanmar on January 13, by a team of Special Forces para commando of the Indian Army.
The two cadres — captain Bishowrjit (real name Chingangbam Koktumani), s/o Inaobi Meetei and Ibecha of Nongpok Sekmai and 2nd lieutenant Thoihenba (real name Khaidem Indrajit aka Inaocha), s/o Tomba and Rajmani of Tera Makhong Nambol — were well discipline cadres of the party who strived for freedom, stated a press release by RPF’s deputy secretary publicity Roben Khuman.
The RPF and its armed wing PLA also shared the grief of the bereaved families, relatives and friends of the two deceased. Condolence ceremonies were also held at the outfit’s units, departments and stations, it added.
While captain Bishowrjit joined the outfit in 2008 and received the “Basic Military Training” of PLA, he was appointed as captain to the outfit’s “War Office”. Thoihenba joined the outfit in 2016 and after receiving Basic Military Training, he was appointed as 2nd lieutenant in the War Office, the release stated.
The outlawed outfit also claimed that PLA swiftly launched a counter-attack on January 13 and pushed back the para commandos, and they retreated by abandoning its mission to avoid casualty on their side. The outfit also claimed that during the attack, four personnel of the Special Forces para commando were killed and seven others were also critically injured.
The release further said that the following day, PLA carried out a search operation and found one body of the para commando and recovered one magazine-pouch, three AK-47 magazines, one hand grenade, three helmet-torchlights and a packet of opium from the body.
“The recovery of opium indicates that the personnel of Indian Army, who earn meagre income to look after their families, are being fed with drugs to make them high and not to be afraid of death,” the release said.
The RPF further said that there were condolence messages on social media for one of the deceased who donned the uniform of para commando, who was a “major” of CNA, an ethnic insurgent group of Myanmar. It questioned the involvement of the cadre amongst the para commandos of the Indian Army.
The proscribed outfit maintained that carrying out such an attack with the help of Myanmar based insurgent group validates that India is attempting to create animosity among the groups in WESEA region. The RPF also cautioned the insurgent groups operating in the region that they will not get any help from India when the needs arise, while maintaining that the outfits operating in the region should be vigilant to avoid any misunderstanding in the future.
