The Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-K) leader S.S. Khaplang, whose outfit carried out the June 4 attack on the Army in Manipur, is believed to be ill and convalescing in a Yangon hospital.

The 75-year-old Khaplang, suffering from age-related ailments, was shifted from his base in Tago, located along the China-Myanmar border, to Myanmar’s biggest city Yangon about four months ago, official sources said.

Myanmar had informed India about shifting Mr. Khaplang, who is a Myanmarese national, to Yangon in February and New Delhi had conveyed its “no objection” to that, the sources said.

The NSCN-K was then in a ceasefire agreement with the government. However, barely a month after his being shifted, the outfit ended the agreement.
