  • According to reports, hundreds of students on June 11 staged sit-in protests against the non-implementation of Inner Line Permit (ILP) system in Manipur. The Manipur government has already forwarded the resolution of the Assembly to the Centre and the Centre has to take a decision on its implementation. 1

    In another development, according to reports, the Chinese interest in causing problems in India will play an important role in the growth of Maoist rebels and the equations between the Maoists and the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) within the next 10 years. This was the observation made by the Task Force constituted by the Assam Government to study the growth of Maoists in the State and to recommend measures to deal with the same. The report admitted that Assam stands to face a stiff challenge of yet another armed movement, that is with the Maoists in the days to come and a comprehensive action plan needs to be implemented quickly to deal with the growth of the Maoist rebels in Assam and other parts of North East. 2

    In other developments, reports noted that two cadres of NSCN-IM were arrested and a government official was rescued from their clutches during a joint operation in troubled Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh. The joint security operation arrested the cadres and recovered extortion money from their possession. 3

    According to reports, the Guwahati city police arrested three arms carriers and recovered a cache of arms and ammunition from the Inter State Bus Terminus (ISBT) on June 13 in Guwahati. The consignment originated at Dimapur and was meant to be further delivered for banned outfit GNLA in Meghalaya after its arrival in ISBT. This is the sixth consignment of GNLA that have been intercepted by City Police since March, 2011. 4
