Abducted assistant of Manipur MLA rescued


Imphal, May 8: A Manipur MLA's assistant, who was abducted by militants for ransom last month, was rescued by security forces from Senapati district of the state, police said on Sunday, May 8.

A team of security forces last night rescued P Thangsiangbiak, assistant of Singhat MLA G S Haopu, after exchanging fire with the cadres of the Tribal Revolutionary Army (TRA) at the densely forest area in the vicinity of Kontam village in the district.


The site from where the police rescued the victim was disclosed by one TRA cadre Letkhomang Kipgen who was caught from Churachandpur district on May 6, a police official said.

Thangsiangbiak was abducted last month for ransom allegedly by Douthanglen Kipgen, President of the newly floated TRA.

He was recently declared "wanted" by the Manipur Police. A cash award of Rs one lakh was offered to anyone who could provide information which would lead to the capture of D Kipgen, a police statement had said.
