Movement on Myanmar border curbed 
>From A Correspondent 
IMPHAL, Nov. 21. 
The BSF and the central forces in Chandel district bordering 
Myanmar have restricted the movement of petty businessmen 
and smugglers along the international border following snipings 
and lootings by armed youth suspected to be members of some 
proscribed organisations, official sources said. 
Three personnel of 11 Gurkha Regiment posted at Moreh along 
the international border were seriously injured on Tuesday when 
they were ambushed.  Besides there have been increasing 
reports of lootings from businessmen coming to Moreh.  Soon 
after the commission of the crime these armed men cross over 
to Myanmar rendering the Indian security forces helpless. 
Since no criminal has been apprehended so far, it is not exactly 
known which underground organisation commits these crimes.  
It is suspected that even some underground organisations of 
Myanmar might have been behind these crimes.
