IMPHAL, June 22 (Newmai News Network): A mason hired by TN Haokip, Manipur minister for department of information and public relation and tourism was kidnapped late last night (Tuesday) from the construction site of the minister’s Imphal East property.
Two unknown armed persons came on a white Maruti Gypsy at the construction site at minister TN Haokip’s property at Ahallup in Imphal East at around 11 pm and abducted the mason, a police source said.
The kidnapped mason has been identified by the police as Yumnam Rabi, 30, s/o Irabot of Lilong Chajing.
A reliable police source suspected the hand of a particular underground organisation in the abduction. However, until the filing of this report, no substantial evidence was available that might point finger at any organization and no organizations have so far claimed responsibility too.
