A person posing as police personnel and threatening people was caught by villagers of Wangkhem village in Imphal East district and handed over to local police station.

A police source said that while handing over Thongram Inao Singh (57), a resident of Chanam Sandrok Mamang Leikai of the Imphal East district late Wednesday night, the villagers charged him of threatening some villagers by entering their respective houses.

Villagers also thrashed him before handing over to the Irilbung police station. However, he was not seriously injured, the police said.  

Villagers said that he  would pose and a policeman and entered into the houses of the villagers and threaten them with an arrest warrant issued by Civil Judge (Sr Div) Lamphel. 

He also allegedly inquired the whereabouts of president and secretary of the local youth club while threatening them with arrest, they said. 

Secretary of Wangkem Nongmaileima Youth Club, Ch Samananda, in his complaint lodged to the police while handing the person, said that there was a case going on in the Civil Court Lamphel about encroachment of a village grazing ground. 

A person from Singjamei Chingamathak in Imphal West district has allegedly encroached the land without due process, he said alleging that the person from Singjamei Chingamathak was  behind sending the apprehended person to the village to threaten villagers.

He alleged that the incident in which Thongram threatened the villager posing as police personnel was related to the case.

Similar incident of threatening the villagers had happened earlier too. However, villagers had failed to detain the person who came to threaten the villagers in the earlier incident, the secretary added.
