Bishnupur: In a disturbing development amid the ongoing unrest in Manipur, two Zeliangrong Nagas from Noney district were abducted and brutally beaten up at Moirang under Bishnupur district on Tuesday.

According to ZSUM, the victims, Giangjilung Rongmei (38) from Khoupum Satudai, Noney District, and Jeanguanglung Malangmei (28) from Bitiang Village, Noney District, were abducted and held hostage by six suspected Arambai Tenggol members at gunpoint.
The incident took place around 5 pm on Monday, the victims were threatened, severely beaten and accused of being Kukis. During the abduction, the attackers took away valuables worth Rs 2 lakh, including Rs 21 thousand in cash.
