Shades of previous success in arrest of UNLF leader?

As clarity around the circumstances and status of the reported arrest of UNLF leader Rajkumar Meghen remains illusive, KanglaOnline ran an editorial this week pointing out the similarities between this case and the capture of the NSCN(IM) leader in Thailand in 2000, an event that was followed by the signing of a ceasefire agreement between that group and the government of India.

The National Socialist Council of Nagaland - Isak Muivah, or NSCN(IM), a Naga nationalist group, was itself in the news this week with sources reporting the arrest of leader Anthony Shimrey while another quoted leader Kihoto Yepthomi  reaffirming the group's commitment to peace.
