Top leader of a militant group based in Manipur carrying a reward of Rs one lakh on his head has been arrested from Delhi along with one of his associates, a police source here said on Monday.

Self-styled chairman Laishram Mangoljao Singh aka Lamyanba Khuman of Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP)- People’s War Group (PWG) was arrested along with Hijbur Rahman from New Delhi’s Nirankari Sarovar Bus Stand at Burari on Sunday. A combined team of Manipur police led by an additional SP and Delhi Police Special Cell (Southwest Range) arrested them during an operation. The self-styled chairman had absconded after abrogating the suspension of operation with the government of Manipur allegedly to re-establish the militant group KCP (PWG). 

The chairman was in the news recently after state police announced a cash reward of Rs one lakh to anyone who can provide information leading to his arrest. The same cash reward was also on the head of the arrested his associate.

Both of them were declared wanted after the non-bailable warrants were issued against them by the concerned courts where cases against them were pending. 

KCP (Lamyanba Khuman group) had once surrendered en-masse with arms after a suspension of operation truce was inked with Manipur government.

However, Khuman reportedly left the designated camp arranged by the government for lodging the surrendered cadres and allegedly started committing several terror-related activities like lobbying of grenades, shootouts, killings, planting of bombs, running extortion networks by intimidating businessmen and politicians etc, the police alleged.  Besides, many cases related with crimes registered with different police stations were pending against him. Among others, some cases were related with threatening the chief minister of Manipur.

The source said that state police have been tracking his whereabouts since he left the designated camp and started committing pre-judicial activities in the state since the last couple of years. The state police team was processing for bringing back the arrested militant leaders after taking transit remand from a local court in the national capital, the source added.
