Two active cadres of proscribed outfits – the United National Liberation Front- Progressive (UNLF-P) and one from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) were arrested during separate operations in Manipur.
The cadres were nabbed from Thoubal and Imphal West districts during two separate operations by Manipur police and troopers of Assam Rifles.
Taking to Twitter, Assam Riffles wrote, “ASSAM RIFLES APPREHENDS UNLF(P) AND PLA INSURGENTS IN MANIPUR Keithelmanbi Battalion of #AssamRifles on 30 Aug, in a joint operation with Thoubal Police apprehended 2 active insurgents of proscribed group UNLF(P) & 1 insurgent of PLA from Thoubal & Imphal West Districts, Manipur.”
Last month, the leader of the newly flouted insurgent group, National Socialist council of Karbi Anglong (NSCKA), was injured during a shootout with police in Assam’s Karbi Anglong district.
The injured cadre has been identified as Pabitra Teron. Six other members of the organization were also arrested, police informed.
