CJM Imphal West revoked the charges against Kishorechandra Wangkhem, jailed under the National Security Act (NSA), more than four months after he was imprisoned for criticising chief minister N. Biren Singh on social media.

Kishorechandra, 39, has been in the Sajiwa Central Jail in Imphal East since November 27 last year.

The journalist had condemned the chief minister for organising a function to commemorate the Queen of Jhansi battle against the British and linking it to the freedom movement of Manipur.

Wangkhem was detained on November 27. About a week before his detention, he was arrested by the Manipur Police for posting a video critical of Chief Minister N Biren Singh and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Facebook, Scroll reported.
