Former Militant Shot Dead in Manipur

IMPHAL:A former militant was shot dead after dragging out of his house by three masked men at Sadhu Yenkhuman village under Sagolmang police station of Imphal East district around 7.30 pm on Thursday.

The deceased has been identified as one Salam Sanajaoba (28) s/o Khomba of Sadu Yengkhoman Mayai Leikai.

Sanajaoba, his wife and mother were having dinner when three unidentified armed persons barged into their house and tried to take him away.
Even as his wife and mother protested, the unidentified armed persons somehow dragged away Sanajaoba.


Soon after, people of the neighbourbood were informed and a group of people went in search of Sanajaoba in the direction he was led away.

However, gun shots were heard the next moment. On rushing to the direction from where the gun shots were heard, Sanajaoba was found shot dead just about 200 metres away from his home.

Bullet wounds were seen on his head and chest, informed a source.

The corpse has been handed over to family members after post mortem at JNIMS today.

Although Sanajaoba was listed as a cadre of KCP-MC (Nongdrenkhomba group) when the outfit signed MoU with the Government, he was living by felling firewood.

He is survived by his wife and a son.
