Manipur: CorCom militants identified as threatening local Editors

Jan 11, 2017 17:56

In a major breakthrough, Manipur Police have identified the militant group that had been threatening local editors.

On December 26, a hand grenade was left in the office of the Pandam News evening daily with a note saying that it was a “new year gift to the editors”.

This triggered a 24-hour cease-work strike by the local scribes on December 27.

Police late on Monday arrested Mohen Kangabam, 63, an active member of the Kangleipak Communist Party (Lamyanba Khuman), a proscribed militant outfit, and recovered some extortion letters and incriminating items from his house.

The threats were carried out by Corcom, an apex body of six outfits, a spokesperson for the para-military Assam Rifles here said.

“Mohen has confessed to his crime. He disclosed that he planted the hand grenade under the orders of L Mangoljao aka Lamyanba Khuman, the commander-in-chief of the outfit, believed to be hiding now in Nepal,” police said.
