Militant leader from Manipur nabbed in Delhi

Friday November 02, 2012 06:34:34 PM, IANS

New Delhi: A leader of a banned Manipuri militant group has been arrested in the national capital, Delhi Police said Friday.

Ningthoujam Romen Singh alias Nongdrenkhomba, 27, a member of the outlawed Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP), was wanted to stand trial in many criminal cases, police said.

He was arrested from the Inter-State Bus Terminus at Sarai Kale Khan Thursday.

On the request of Manipur Police, Nongdrenkhomba was arrested for his role in cases of murder, abduction and extortion, said Special Commissioner of Police S.N. Srivastava.

The rebel was the KCP's finance secretary and commander-in-chief, he said.

Srivastava said Nongdrenkhomba's arrest led to the rescue of two abducted government officials working at Takmu Water Sports project in Manipur.

Budhi Chandra and Ningthembi were abducted by KCP members for a ransom of Rs.2 crore, said Srivastava.

He said Nongdrenkhomba was also in touch with commanders of other banned outfits, including United Revolutionary Front (URF).

During interrogation, the rebel said he joined the KCP with his brother-in-law in 2007 as an over-ground worker, the police officer said.

Nongdrenkhomba was earlier arrested in 2008 in Meghalaya but was released on bail after two months.

"In 2011, he shifted to Nepal for some months. In December, he went to Goa and in May-June, he shifted base in Agra and was handling kidnappings, attacks and threats to government officials and others from there," Srivastava said.

The main objective of KCP, founded way back in 1980, was to restore the independence of the erstwhile Manipur kingdom and to bring about an egalitarian society, strengthen working class and revive the indigenous culture.

The KCP maintained operational linkages with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K) and the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA). It was banned in 2006.
