Imphal: Manipur Police arrested two suspected fighters of the banned United National Liberation Front (UNLF) with arms and ammunition in Imphal.

Police say the suspects were arrested from two hideouts during a combing operation on Wednesday night.
They were allegedly involved in extorting huge sums of money from common people, the police said on Thursday.
Acting on intelligence inputs, Manipur Police commandos raided two hideouts simultaneously in Imphal East and Imphal West districts on Wednesday.

One cadre of the outfit has been arrested from Elangbam Leikai, Imphal West district and another from Singjamei Wangma Bamol Leikai, Imphal East, police said.
One nine mm pistol, 143 rounds of ammunition and three mobile handsets with four SIM cards were recovered from the possession of the accused.

The police added that they have been handed over to the concerned police stations for further legal action.
The UNLF, also known as the United National Liberation Front of Manipur, is a separatist insurgent group active in the northeastern Indian state of Manipur that aims to establish an independent and socialist Manipur.
