NIA remanded Seimenlun Gangte till October 3

51 years old Seimenlun Gangte, who was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) from Churchandrapur in Manipur on charges of joining hands with foreign militants to wage a war against the Government of India by exploiting current ethnic strife in Manipur was remanded till October 3 in NIA Custody. Gangte was remanded to NIA Custody after producing to the Duty Magistrate Komal Garg at the Patiala House Court in New Delhi on Sunday. The FIR (RC 24/2023/NIA/DLI ) was registered against him by NIA on July 19.
Seimenlun Gangte was arrested from Phuoljang area. Earlier he used to teach English at a private school in Kwakta. After the violence began in May, he was working at a godown in Churachandpur and used to ferry goods for the proprietor Kamaluddin, who lives in Kwakta.
Gangte is the prime accused in the Kwakta bomb blast case in which three civilians were injured when an explosion took place in an SUV parked at Kwakta in Bishnupur on June 21.
The hill district of Churachandpur is dominated by the Kuki-Zo community, whereas Bishnupur in the valley is Meitei-dominated. The inter-district boundary dispute has seen frequent clashes between the two communities since violence erupted in Manipur on May 03 in which at least 175 people were killed since then. Kwakta is dominated by Meitei Pangals or Muslims.
The terror outfits in Myanmar and Bangladesh have been providing funds to procure arms, ammunition, and other types of terrorist hardware to the militants in Manipur to drive a wedge between ethnic groups and to wage a war against the Government of India. The arms and ammunition are being sourced from across the borders as well as from the terrorist outfits active in certain North-Eastern States, the NIA statement read.
It may be recalled that another accused Moirangthem Anand Singh (45) was arrested on September 22 from Manipur by NIA in a case related to a transnational conspiracy by the Myanmar-based leadership of terror outfits to wage a war against the Government of India. He was arrested based on a suo moto case registered by the NIA on July 19 in New Delhi.
