The Indian Army on January 17 dismissed claims it had gunned down two cadres of the proscribed People’s Liberation Army (PLA) at Senam village in Myanmar around 4.30 on early Thursday morning.

Referring to EastMojo’s article 2 PLA cadres killed by Indian forces at Senam, Myanmar, the Army said, “Your Newspaper has reported that a camp of Peoples’ Liberation Army, a Manipuri insurgent group, located in Myanmarse territory was attacked by Indian Special Forces. It is clarified that these reports are baseless and factually incorrect and Indian Army/Assam Rifles was not involved in any such operation. Indian Army urges “East Mojo” to exercise restraint and to confirm inputs of such sensitive nature from defence PROS prior to reports, as such reportage may have serious ramifications on bilateral relations.”
