UPPK leader held at Patna

Patna, June 19 2012: A Manipur police team nabbed four underground cadres belonging to the North Eastern State’s armed insurgent group, UPPK, from the Patna railway station premises on Monday.

Bihar police provided logistics support to the Manipur police team in carrying out the operation, sources said and identified the four as Ningthoujam Shanti Meitei alias Chinglemba, Bobo Meitei alias Maj Khangamba, Birjit and Laishram Jiten Singh.

The arrest of the four cadres in the State capital has alarmed the Bihar police which has sounded alert to district police formations.

Police sources said there were reports that outlawed CPI (Maoist), which is active in Bihar, has connections with the Manipur outfit as Maoists, particularly from Jamui and Gaya areas, are sent to Manipur for training in guerrilla warfare.

The four were produced before the railway magistrate and their transit remand was sought.

A senior Bihar police official said Bihar police would also interrogate them to ascertain their links with Maoists.
