The insurgents have been suspected of being members of the Nationwide Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) group, which requires a sovereign state for the Christian Naga tribes residing within the states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Manipur. Nevertheless, intelligence sources advised NDTV that the fighters have been truly a part of a ‘rogue’ group and never the NSCN(IM), which has been in peace talks with the Indian authorities since 1997.
