Manipur Police has arrested two persons, including a cadre of the banned People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of Manipur, for their alleged involvement in the killing and targeting of non-locals in the state in separate incidents.

Police sources said the PLA cadre was involved in the killing of a non-local on July 8, while another was arrested for planting a bomb at a workshed occupied by non-local workers at Andro Sanathi Park in Imphal East district.

The arrested PLA cadre has been identified as Hijam Sanatomba Singh, 25, a resident of Andro Khuman Lekai. Police said he was involved in transporting a gun that was used to kill a non-local who was gunned down by armed miscreants in Uchol Chingjin on Ngarian Andro Road on July 8.
