Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), an insurgent group of Rohingya Muslims attacked a patrol team of Assam Rifles on the Indo-Myanmar border recently. According to sources in Assam Rifles, the ARSA terrorists are looking to build terror camps on the Myanmar side of the India border.

According to sources, the Assam Rifles forces were attacked in Mizoram in Lawngtlai district last month. The terrorists fired but when the Assam Rifles retaliated, taking advantage of the thick jungle cover, all the terrorists fled to the Myanmar border. This attack is reportedly part of a bigger design to launch a massive onslaught on the Indian armed forces. The aim is to build terror infrastructure in the border area, the sources added.

Pakistan's intelligence agency has been providing huge monetary support to ARSA, which has helped them to mount a counter-attack on the Myanmar army. Even logistic and military training is being given by ISI to the ARSA terrorists. Some Lashkar terrorists are also reportedly involved in training ARSA insurgents. 

This is the first time that Rohingya terrorists have carried out an attack on Indian security forces. Post that the government has alerted the soldiers guarding the entire India and Myanmar border. It is potentially a massive security threat for all the North-Eastern states of the country.
