Arrests based on evidence: NIA, CBI
Source: Chronicle News Service

Imphal, October 02 2023: Amid tribal groups accusing the NIA and CBI of high-handedness in Manipur, the central agencies on Monday said every arrest made in the restive state, which has been witnessing ethnic clashes since May, is based on evidence gathered by investigative teams.

The NIA and CBI officials working here in an ethnically charged environment have been facing the daunting task of completing investigations in various cases, including those related to attacks on Army personnel in 2015, the probe agencies said.

Refuting the allegations levelled by the Indigenous Tribal Leaders' Front (ITLF), an organisation claiming to represent the Kuki-Zo community of Manipur hills, officials from both agencies said no partiality has been shown against any community, religion or sect, and that only the rule book of the Indian Penal Code was abided by.

Referring to the recent arrest of Seiminlun Gangte, a Kuki tribal, the officials said he is one of the key accused in an SUV blast case that took place in the Kwakta area of Bishnupur district on June 21.Three people were injured in the blast.

He was brought to New Delhi after securing his transit remand from the competent court.

In the national capital, the accused was produced before a designated court, which remanded him to NIA custody, they added.

Due course of law is being followed and the evidence collected by the anti-terror agency will be placed before the competent court, the officials further said, adding that baseless allegations were being made only to derail the probe and create confusion among the general public.

A Delhi court has remanded Seiminlun to NIA custody till October 3 in connection with a probe into the transnational conspiracy by Myanmar and Bangladesh-based terror outfits to wage war against India by exploiting the current ethnic unrest in Manipur.

The NIA had registered a suo moto case on July 19 in New Delhi under the anti-terror law Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

On September 22, the NIA arrested Moirangthem Anand Singh from Imphal in connection with a different case.

Anand, along with four others, was arrested by the Manipur Police for possession of weapons looted from the police armoury.

However, all five were bailed out, but Anand Singh was arrested by the NIA for his involvement in terror activities.

He was brought to Delhi and is facing due legal process, the officials said.

Similarly, the arrests carried out by the CBI on Sunday were based on preliminary evidence collected during its probe into the cases of two missing Manipuri students who are believed to have been killed, its officials said.

All four were placed under arrest in a joint operation of the CBI, Manipur Police and the Army to ensure that there was no adverse law-and-order situation, they said.
