New Delhi, Apr 21 2018
The Centre has extended the ceasefire agreement with two insurgent groups in Nagaland for one more year, starting April 28, a Home Ministry official said.
The parties to the ceasefire agreement are — the Centre, the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Neokpao-Khitovi), and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Reformation).
The NSCN (Isak-Muivah) and the NSCN (Khaplang) are among other groups that operate in Nagaland.
While the NSCN (I-M) had entered a ceasefire agreement in 1997 and has been maintaining it since then, the pact with the NSCN (K) ended after the group attacked a military convoy in Manipur in June 2015, killing 18 soldiers. PTI ACB GVS. (PTI)
