The army's eastern command tweeted that reports of it suffering heavy casualties were incorrect. The army also denied that it had launched a surgical strike. News 18 quoted a source as saying, 'The narrative of today's operation being a surgical strike is wrong and refuted. The Eastern Command's tweet truthfully covers the full contours of the operation.'

The operation was reportedly launched after a group of insurgents attacked an Indian Army column that was moving along the Indo-Myanmar border, according to the army.
