DIMAPUR — The Assam Rifles organised a friendship medical camp at the Indo-Myanmar border in Nagaland to spread smiles across the border and assisted in the birth of a baby girl who was later named ‘Chingmai’ by her parents, which means peace in Konyak language.

The medical camp was attended by 205 locals from the Haukyat village cluster in Myanmar and 20 locals from the Indian side. According to a press release, the locals on both sides expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the first-of-its-kind friendship camp.
