Pointing fingers towards China, New Delhi on Wednesday has said that Northeast based militant outfits are procuring arms from across the border. “There are reports that various insurgent and militants groups operating in the North Eastern States procure arms and sophisticated weapons from Sino-Myanmar border towns and South-East Asia,” said Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju.

No direct Chinese involvement has been reported, he said. “The activities of such underground groups are kept under close vigil,” Rijiju said.

In order to counter unlawful activities of these groups, the Central Government is, inter-alia, supplementing efforts of the State governments through various measures such as deployment of additional Central security forces for carrying out intensive counter insurgency operations and providing security for vulnerable installations and projects, effective guarding of international borders by the border security forces, based on threat assessment.

“Sharing of intelligence, financial assistance for strengthening of the local police forces and intelligence agencies under the police modernization scheme, through the scheme of security related expenditure for strengthening various aspects of security, raising of additional Forces in the form of India Reserve Battalions are also on,” said the Rijiju in the Parliament.
