Ahead of upcoming assembly polls in the state, Manipur police recovered a large stash of weapons including 15 AK series rifles, RPG launcher in Thoubal district and apprehended three persons including an insurgent of banned outfit United National Liberation Front (UNLF).

The recovered arms belong to the banned outfit UNLF.

Based on secret information, a team of Manipur police on Sunday launched a search operation at Huikap Awang Leikai Changa Loukoi area.

A police officer of Thoubal district said that they received reliable information that some insurgents of UNLF are concealing a huge cache of arms and ammunition at Huikap Awang Leikai Chonga Loukoi area and a police tea immediately rushed to the area and conducted a house to house search operation.

During the search operation, an unknown person tried to escape on seeing the police team in suspicious behavior and police chased him and detained the person who was identified as Laithangbam Praffullo Singh and is an insurgent of UNLF.

The police officer further said that, on the UNLF insurgent’s disclosure, the police team conducted a search operation and found a water tank under the ground in a cowshed and on opening the water tank the police team found a large quantity of arms and ammunition concealed inside it.

Police recovered 13 AK-56 rifles with magazines, one AK-81 rifle with three magazines, one AK-86 rifle with three magazines, one M-16 rifle with magazine, one RPG launcher, one RPG shell, one M-16 A4-UBGL (40 mm grenade launcher) with one magazine, 200 numbers of 7.62×39 mm live rounds, 10 numbers of 5.56 mm live rounds.

Later, police also arrested two other persons identified as Laitonjam Kumar Singh and Wahengbam Tompok Singh who helped the UNLF insurgent to conceal the recovered arms and ammunition.

Assembly polls will be held in Manipur early next year to elect 60 members of the Manipur Legislative Assembly.

On November 13, Manipur based insurgent groups People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and Manipur Naga People’s Front (MNPF) had jointly ambushed a convoy of Assam Rifles in Manipur’s Churachandpur district along Indo-Manipur border which resulted in the death of seven persons including a Colonel of Assam Rifles and his wife, minor son.
