Kuki Body Slams Mizoram Govt For Arrest Of Its Leaders

Imphal, Jun 24 : The United People's Front (UPF), one of the two apex bodies of various Kuki militants, which are signatories of the ongoing Suspension of Operation (SoO) with the government, slammed the government for the recent arrest of its leaders by Mizoram Police from Silchar airport.

On June 10, Mizoram Police arrested UPF vice chairman Lalroupuia and deputy commander Viek from Silchar airport on the charge of attempting to carry out subversive activities.

Stating that the arrest would slow down the SoO process, the UPF demanded unconditional release of its leaders.

Since the Kuki underground groups are signatories of the tripartite SoO pact and their families and relatives reside in various parts of the country, UPF's spokesperson Jacob Thadou assumed that they can move freely across the nation.

The tripartite SoO agreement was signed in August 2008.
