Manipur militant nabbed in Guwahati city

GUWAHATI, Feb 1 (TNN): Guwahati police`s operation wing, in association with Manipur police, nabbed Laiphrakpam Sunil Singh alias S K, a People`s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK) militant, from Birubari area in the state capital. Singh belongs to Awang Leikai Khurai under Porompat police station in Imphal East district.

Two laptops, important documents and Nepalese and Bhutanese currency were recovered from his possession.

“He is a major lead and we hope to gather important inputs from him. We have found visiting cards of many hotels and other places in Nepal and Bhutan. He is a frequent visitor to these places for sure,” said an official.

PREPAK was formed in 1977 to demand expulsion of `outsiders` from the Manipur. The outfit allegedly received weapons and training from the Kachin Independent Army (KIA) of Myanmar in exchange for cash. Some of the rebels were also trained in camps in Bangladesh.
