According to the input the cadres had set up a temporary hideout in vicinity of a house belonging to SS Colonel Yaritiva Lotha of NSCN(IM) who is presently residing at the Herbon Camp. It had also been noticed that the cadres were using the safe house for transit and keeping the weapons and ammunition for short duration for further supplying it to other parts of the state for nefarious activities. An area cordon was established around the specified house by maintaining utmost stealth during the early hours of the day and the search of the aea was started subsequently. During the swift search of the safe house the resident cadres panicked and attempted to flee by breaking the cordon. However with absolute disregard to personal safety and maintaining a high standard of self control and discipline the troops captured the fleeing cadres with no collateral damage and completed the search operation The effort by the security forces has been appreciated by the residents of Chumukedima for whom this act of bravery has brought a new ray of hope for a better future and a peaceful Nagaland.
