A new armed outfit, called Kangleipak Apunba Ning-tam Yoel Lup (KANYL) surfaced in Manipur adding to the existing outnumbered armed groups operating in the state. Claiming that the outfit was formed eight years back in November 3, 2003 in a meeting held in Thoubal district under the chair of one Thouba Meitei, the group in a press statement on Monday sought support from the people. To return the lost “sovereignty” of the state and regain the freedom of the people is the motto of the outfit, the statement stated and claimed that the group ensured that no activities which would cause hardship to the people will be meted out by its activists.
Manipur is home to over 38 odd armed outfits where many factions are actively involved in extortion activities and threatening people to achieve their end. Even though a dramatic fall in insurgency-related fatalities from 416 in 2009 to 134 in 2010 was recorded, extortion activities of the armed outfits particularly from the factions are on the rise.
