Tensions simmer in Nagaland as the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) accuses Indian security forces of collaborating with Kuki rebel groups. This allegation comes amid ongoing violence between the Meitei and Kuki-Zo communities in neighboring Manipur.

The NSCN-IM, a prominent Naga armed group engaged in peace talks with the Indian government, has vehemently denied any involvement in the Manipur conflict. However, they have accused the Assam Rifles (AR) and the Para Regiment, both belonging to the Indian security apparatus, of siding with Kuki rebel groups.

The NSCN-IM claims this alleged collaboration has created a “war-like scenario” along the India-Myanmar border. They believe Indian security forces are facilitating the movement and operations of Kuki militants, particularly the Kuki National Army (KNA) – Myanmar.

The NSCN-IM further criticizes the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for “falsely” alleging their outfit’s involvement in the Meitei-Kuki-Zo conflict. They view this as an attempt to deflect blame from the Indian security forces’ actions.

These accusations cast a shadow over the ongoing peace talks between the NSCN-IM and the Indian government. Finding a peaceful resolution to the decades-long Naga insurgency hinges on trust and transparency. This incident has the potential to derail the progress made so far.

Both sides need to take steps to de-escalate tensions. Independent investigations into the NSCN-IM’s claims are crucial to fostering trust and ensuring a path towards a peaceful resolution of the Naga conflict.
