Imphal, Jan 4:
Deputy Secretary of the armed rebel group Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP), M. Punsiba Meitei, has accused Md. Hassan of being a drug smuggler kingpin and announced a death penalty. He also expressed sorrow for the loss of lives in the fatal incident at Lilong Chingjao on January 1, 2024.
In a statement released today, the outfit shared some dark facts about Md. Hassan, son of Md. Habibur, in order to provide people with a better understanding of why a respected liberation organization like the RPF/PLA would target him.
The statement revealed that Md. Hassan has been on the Kangleipak Communist Party’s radar for a long time due to his involvement in the narcotics trade. While heroin is his primary focus, he also deals in opium.
The outfit claimed that Md. Hassan has partners in the Kuki narco-terrorist group who supply him with opium and other drugs. He also has narcotics trade partners in West Bengal, where he regularly sends drugs through paid carriers, many of whom are Muslims from various places in Manipur like Kwakta, Lilong, and Sara.
It is reported that he pays around 50 thousand rupees per kilogram of heroin. Some of his carriers have been caught in West Bengal and left to suffer in jail without any assistance from him. One of his carriers, Md. Jabir from Thoubal Khunou, died in a Kolkata prison in 2020 after a prolonged imprisonment during which Md. Hassan did not provide any help.
The outfit alleged that Md. Hassan operates a lab in the Lilong area where opium is chemically processed to produce “crude,” which is then further processed into heroin.
The statement also mentioned that, after seeing video coverage of his multi-crore house, it is reasonable to assume that Md. Hassan plans to use or is already using his extensive property as a narcotics manufacturing lab. Why else would his family of five build a fortified complex with a 12-mm iron gate? Despite not being an industrialist or established businessman, it is perplexing that the various law enforcement agencies of the puppet government have not investigated his finances or questioned the source of his immense wealth, the statement said.
The outfit criticized the government investigating agency for failing to properly examine the CCTV footage and seal the site of the incident.
The KCP has resolved to permanently exile Md. Hassan from the land of Kangleipak starting from January 10, 2024, due to his involvement in the narcotics trade.
“If Md. Hassan is found in any part of Kangleipak after the aforementioned date, the Party will execute him on the spot in the interest of the people of Kangleipak,” the statement said.
