An eerie silence prevails in Chandel district of Manipur bordering Myanmar a day after the insurgents killed 18 army jawans on Thursday.
But the security forces yet to fan in the Moltuk area fearing more ambush after the deadly attack by the insurgents killed the jawans belonging to the 6 Dogra infantry regiment.
The 12 other jawans who sustained injury are battling for life at the hospital. The ambushed took place along the village Indo-Myanmar Road in between Paraolon and Chalong Villages, in Chandel district.
The ambush took place when another regiment was on the way for replacement. The entire area was cordoned off. No body was allowed to visit the area.
The panic stricken villagers could not sleep at night while a section of the villagers have started leaving their homes in search of safer place.
Today’s mindless attack in Manipur is very distressing. I bow to each and every soldier who has sacrificed his life for the Nation.
