Manipur outfit UNLF chief Meghen produced before NIA court


IMPHAL, April 27: Chairman of the outlawed United National Liberation Front (UNLF), RK Meghen alias Sanayaima and several other leaders of the outfit, were produced before the Special Court of National Investigative Agency (NIA) in Guwahati today.

The chairman and his close colleagues were produced in connection with the ongoing deposition of prosecution witnesses of the case to be conducted based on the charge sheets framed against them by NIA.

However, two of the prosecution witnesses failed to appear.

The court had decided to conduct further proceedings of the case from today after statements of the prosecution witnesses were recorded from March 30 to April 1 last.

During the last proceedings of the case, deposition up to prosecution witness number 69 was conducted.

The two prosecution witnesses who were asked to be present before the court today are an IAS Officer under Government of Manipur and official serving as Under Secretary of Ministry of Home Affairs (MHS).

It is said that the Special Court of NIA had taken serious note of the absence of the two prosecution witnesses of the case which has passed five years now.

It may be mentioned that the NIA had filed charge sheets against Meghen and several other leaders of UNLF for waging war against the Indian Union. Meghen was reportedly arrested by NIA on November 30, 2010 from Motihari in Bihar near the India-Nepal border.
