Editor of a Manipuri daily, A Mobi, who was arrested last week for his alleged links with a militant outfit, was today released on bail by a local court.
Mobi, who was arrested on December 29, had been in police custody since then.
A spokesman of the All Manipur Working Journalists Union said Mobi, its the vice-president, was entrusted to contact militant outfits to convey to them that they should not disturb the publications of dailies in Manipur.
While one would want their statement to be published, the other would threaten that media houses publishing it would be blown up.
He said AMWJU had urged the state government on many occasions to prevent militant outfits from interfering in the publication of dailies, but the government failed to act. Since his arrest, media houses had stopped bringing out newspapers.
