Express News Service
Kolkata, December 26: Union home secretary VK Duggal will be visiting Bhutan next month to discuss issues related to Indian militant groups setting up camps in the country.
Chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had urged prime minister Manmohan Singh to resume joint operations with Bhutan afresh to force militants out of the country.
Addressing a press conference here, Duggal said: “A joint assessment will be made to take stock of the situation. Though we do not have confirmed inputs about militant camps in the country, we have come across some reports in that regard”.
Recently, the state, facing challenges from militant groups, began to suspect the reappearance of their camps in Bhutan.
