Union Government in the fourth week of December 2014 decided to launch Operation All Out against Bodo militants. The decision to launch the operation was taken during the meeting of Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in Delhi.
The meeting was to review the security situation in Assam after National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) militants’ on 23 December 2014 massacred at least 81 tribal people in two districts of Assam, Kokrajhar and Sonitpur.
The two-tier armed operation will be carried on by about 9000 soldiers of Indian Army and paramilitary troopers on the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border to flush out militants of the NDFB (Songbijit Brahma group).
Apart from this, authorities have also mulled coordinated action with armies of Bhutan and Myanmar to hunt the NDFB(S) militants, as the group has its bases in the two countries. Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay has assured its support to India in its action against the Bodo militants.
