NEW DELHI, June 11 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has convened a high-level meeting with the Assam Police and security officials tomorrow to review the situation following the Army operation in Myanmar. Meanwhile, the Assam Police has been already placed on alert.
The decision to convene the meeting was taken following reports of incursion of militants from across the Myanmar border and elsewhere from other northeastern States.
A high level meeting, chaired this morning by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and attended by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Home Secretary LC Goyal, Army Chief Dalbir Singh and top Intelligence Bureau and RAW officials, took stock of the prevailing situation following the Army crackdown on insurgent outfits operating out of Myanmar.
A high security alert has been sounded across North East to foil any retaliatory strike by the militants.
Meanwhile, talking to this newspaper, the Chief Minister said that the State government too had reports of militants sneaking into the State. �We are keeping a close watch on the situation,� he said.
Gogoi had met the Union Home Minister on Wednesday and demanded that the Central forces should not be withdrawn from Assam. The Union Home Minister has agreed not to withdraw the additional Central forces, as they too had reports that violence may erupts once the forces are withdrawn,� he said.
