Since India’s independence in 1947, Manipur has been a breeding ground for insurgent groups. The northeastern Indian state bordering Myanmar, is also known to be a hub of cross-border smuggling of arms and drugs.

Currently, several of them are under Suspension of Operation and Ceasefire Agreements with the government. The newly floated United National Liberation Front of Western South-East Asia (UNLFWSEA) that includes five more rebel outfits from the northeastern region led by NSCN-K chief SS Khaplang was involved on the ambush on an Army unit in Chandel district earlier this June.
