The raid carried out by the 21 Para (SF) of the Indian Army had killed at least 40-45 insurgents and had sparked off a minor diplomatic crisis between India and Myanmar until India's National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar rushed to Nai Payi Taw in the immediate aftermath of the Indian forces raid.

After NSCN-K abrogated the ceasefire with the Government of India in 2015, the Nagaland government in consultation with the Centre had been sending delegations to meet the NSCN (K) leadership in Myanmar to convince the rebel outfit to re-enter the peace process to find an early solution to the Naga political problem, he said.

The NSCN came into existence after the Shillong accord was signed in 1975, accepting the supremecy of Indian Constitution. Earlier this week, an Indian Army major was killed while three ULFA cadres were eliminated in an encounter in Monday district of Nagaland bordering Myanmar.

Born in April 1940 in Waktham village just east of Myanmar's Pangsau Pass, Khaplang is the youngest of his 10 siblings and was also leading the newly-formed United Liberation Front of Western South East Asia. However, no official announcement has been made from the NSCN-K yet on the appointment of a new chairman. The group, however, split up soon after.

He formed the group following differences with the NSCN (IM) leaders Isak Chishi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah.

While referring to the government sources media reports said that the ailing leader had died of diabetes-related complications.

The assemblage in Tallahassee was supposed to rubber-stamp behind-the-scenes deals on education and economic development. As part of those negotiations, education funding for grades K-12 will increase by $100 per student over a year ago.

"The NSCN-K is a Myanmar-based illegal organisation and we banned it in 2015". In memory of the departed leader who had dedicated all his life to the cause of the Naga people, let all Naga people dedicate ourselves to strive for peace, harmony and well-being of the entire Naga family so that we and our children can march ahead with the rest of the world as equals in the 21 century and even more'.

Shurhozelle Liezietsu, the top elected official of Nagaland state, said Saturday that officials had visited Myanmar recently and held talks with leaders of the Khaplang faction to encourage them to return to the peace talks.

There was no immediate reaction from the rebel group or key tribal bodies including Naga Hoho and Naga Mothers' Association.
