Imphal, January 19 2017:
Taking note of the allegations levelled by the NSCN (IM) that the State police were responsible for the incident at Lukhambi (Khumji) on January 12 in which one civilian was killed and three others including one oil tanker driver were injured, the PRO of the State Police Department has asserted that the allegations were baseless and false.
In a statement, the PRO said that the allegations were raised to malign the image of the State police and added that the crime was committed by the NSCN (IM) under the operational command of captain Gaichamdin and captain Khangdi of Lukhambi (Khumji).
The PRO also urged the public not to be misled by such false propaganda.
