IMPHAL, Dec 30: The outlawed Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup, KYKL in a statement signed by its deputy publicity secretary, H Khamba has denied that those arrested by State Police on December 27 in connection with Uripok bomb blast are not related with the party.
According to the statement, Loitongbam Hemchandra and his sons Bimol Meitei, 40, Dinachandra Meitei, of Sagolband Moirang Hanuba Mamang Leirak, and Laihourungbam Saratchandra, 40, son of L Ibohal of Top Awang Leikai are not members of KYKL.
It said L Hemchandra is the father of L Tompok, who is presently the administrative officer of Imphal West District of KYKL. Besides, the claim made by the State Police that Bimol was caught with hand grenade from the area of Moirang Hanuba leirak is baseless, it added.
It continued that Dinachandra was also arrested by the police for protesting against his brother`™s arrest by the police. The act of the police is an ugly sign of State terrorism, the statement added.
