Special Operations India: Myanmar

MUMBAI: District, Manipur. 18 Indian soldiers were martyred, in what was one of the worst militant attacks in North-East India in a decade. In response, the Indian Army sent in Paratrooper Special Forces to trace the attackers along the India Myanmar Border and destroy their militant stronghold, before more terror attacks could follow. It was a classified mission that’s now known as Operation Hot Pursuit. HISTORY TV18 presents the true story of this counter-insurgency operation in a new documentary - Special Operations India: Myanmar, a one –hour feature premiering28th March, 2018 at 9pm. This is the second film in the Special Operations India mini-series, the first one being the path-breaking documentary about India’s Surgical Strikes in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.

“Operation Hot Pursuit”was a race against time. It remainsone of India’s most daring military operations in recent history. It wasthe need of the hour, following the militant attack on an Indian Army convoy. The ambush had been planned and carried out by an insurgent group called the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khapalang (NSCN K). The NSCN-K is a well-organized militia operating in North East India. Their funding comes from extortion, kidnappings and gun-running in the region. Sources also believe they are covertly aided by foreign powers. Following the ambush, Indian military intelligence showedthat the insurgents had retreated to a large camp along the Indo-Myanmar Border. Swift counter insurgency measures were needed, to deter militants waging war against the Union of India. The Indian Army’s elite Paratrooper Special Forces unit in the North East were tasked with the mission. The HistoryTV18documentary follows these Jungle Warfare Specialists on their deadly mission against the NSCN- K.

The story is told through the experiencesof the men leading the operation and the decision makers in India’s military establishment at the time.The narrative relies on the first person accounts ofAjit Doval, National Security Advisor to the Government of India, General Bipin Rawat, India’s current Chief of Army Staff and the Special Forces Team Leader (identity undisclosed) spearheading the assault on ground. The programme also featuresManohar Parrikar, Former Defence Minister, General Dalbir Singh, Former Chief of Army Staff andNitin Gokhale,Defence Analyst and author, who share their insights.

Myanmar'. This show best epitomizes our brand & content promise- to bring forth inspiring stories of 'history being made every-day'.
