Risking his life, a traffic constable single handedly nabbed an armed person who came face to face with him while the latter was fleeing along with four other accomplices after reportedly extorting money from some shops at Eros Lane, Tuesday. The extortionist was nabbed between M.P road and Murgipati road at around 3:15 p.m. The constable, Sakumeren of Mongsenyimti village said he was on duty at M.P road when the armed person identified as Wingbao Zeliang confronted him while fleeing and fired a shot at him which missed. In a quick reaction, the constable immediately caught the miscreant by the legs during which he sustained minor injury on his right hand. The miscreant had also earlier fired another shot in the air while fleeing, police said. Police seized 7.65, one magazine and 4 live rounds and one empty shell from his possession. Police made the miscreant contact his four other accomplices through phone, who had already fled the scene, to reach Grace Colony and then apprehended them. The four accused were identified as Akebo Sangtam, Pitongse Sangtam, Lesechen Sangtam and Fokor-uddin.
