Imphal, April 25: A team of Imphal West Police commando today picked up 24 non locals from Thangal Bazar area after they failed to produce proper valid documents. The reason for the detention is subjective as police are now working day and night to check presence of anti-social element in Imphal city.
On hearing the news a team of JCILPS went to the police station to verify the non-locals. It was found out that among the 24 persons 18 are found to have no proper valid documents to prove where they come from and where they stayed. The remaining 6 of them showed identity cards which look like fake id. The photos pasted at the I-cards were all blurred.
On further inquiry it is learnt that the 24 non-locals were brought to Imphal by one Manish (aged 40) son of Madan Lal Jain presently staying at Thangal Bazar for utilizing them as labour for a marriage party.
