Imphal May 12,
Armed rebel group operating in the region today rubbishes the Assam Rifles’ claim of arresting 7 cadres along with arms and ammunitions from Indo-Myanmar border in Manipur’s Ukhrul district.
- Sak-hen, Director , Department of Publicity of the proscribed group United National Liberation Front, (UNLF) Manipur, in a statement called the claim as ‘Fake arrest” while A. Yaiphaba, Secretary, Publicity and research of another proscribed group Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup ( KYKL) term the claim of the AR as fabricated story to discourage the revolutionary movement. Achouba, Publicity Officer, Deptt. Of Publicity and Propaganda of armed rebel group People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK) terms the claim of AR as a cheap propaganda.
The Assam Rifles in a statement issued yesterday had claimed 7 cadres of the three rebel groups were apprehended during an operation conducted on May 9, 2019 from Indo-Myanmar border in Kamjong district. The Security Forces claimed to have arrested five cadres of PREPAK, one cadre of KYLE and one cadre of UNLF along with a large seizure of weapon and ammunition which included one 7.62 mm AK 56 Rifle, a 7.62 mm Assault Rifle Type 81, one 9 mm Pistol, 79 rounds of 7.62 mm AK, six 9 mm rounds, three Chinese Hand Grenades, two rounds of Lathod High Explosive, three Detonators and one magazine of AK and 9mm pistol.
“ There is no base camp or any kind of camp of the PREPAK or its army wing Red Army at border Pillar 8 and Border Pillar 9 in Kamjong district neither we have lost any of our weapons nor any cadres have been arrested”, said Achouba of PREPAK. The statement further added that the security forces false propaganda to spew venom to the neighbouring country is nothing but an attempt to cross a bailey bridge by a bull. The PREPAK has been fighting for the freedom of the country and it is the trust, believe and support of the people that gives strength to the movement. The cheap propaganda will never succeed to defame the PREPAK, the statement added.
KYKL on the other hand said that the kind of news spread by the security forces is the usual practice to cheat the people of the region. The reality is that the Indian army are now exhausted and want to stay indoor as they have no more courage to face the armed rebel group, however their hunger for promotion, incentive and award and it comes to the public sphere day after another.
The KYKL mock the Indian Army saying that they always look for a place to hide as they have no courage to fight their enemy and they are now number one in spreading false story to the world.
The person that they claim to be a member identified as Mangle @ Budhi of Heirok Part III has been discharged from the KYKL due to an illness. While leaving KYKL he did not carry any weapon, the KYKL statement said.
The statement by the UNLF also said that the person which the Army claim to have arrested as a member of the UNLF, identified as Laishram [email protected] Ningjaba of Khurai Angom Leikai is an absconder since 2017 after he failed to follow the rules of the party.
“It is another drama of fake arrest”, the statement by Sakhen said and added that it is the nature of the Indian army to stage drama of Fake Surrender, Fake Encounter and fake arrest. Such fake drama has never or will never affect the revolutionary movement of the UNLF.
