Imphal: In a major breakthrough, Army apprehended three persons with arms and ammunition on Sunday at New Checkon in Manipur’s Imphal East District.
Acting on inputs from intelligence about a plot to attack security forces around City Convention Centre, Imphal East District, the Army set up Mobile Vehicle Check Posts (MVCP) in the area and apprehended the three armed miscreants.
On May 28, the Army installed multiple Mobile Vehicle Check Posts (MVCP) in the suspected area. At 7:30 pm in the area, a suspicious Maruti Alto car carrying four passengers approached an MVCP. On being stopped by authorities conducting scrutiny, the suspects attempted to flee the scene.
