National Investigation Agency.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday announced rewards ranging from Rs 4 lakh to Rs 8 lakh for “information of importance” on militants involved in the ambush of seven persons including an Assam Rifles Colonel and his family in Manipur last November.

The 10 insurgents allegedly involved in the November 13, 2021 attack carried out by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and the Manipur Naga People’s Front (MNPF).

A spokesperson of the NIA said any person with “information of importance” on the suspects leading to their arrest or apprehension will be rewarded.

On November 13 last year, PLA and MNPF militants ambushed a convoy with arms and explosives near Sialsih village on the India-Myanmar road under the Singngat Police Station of Manipur’s Churachandpur district.

The attack resulted in the death of five Assam Rifles personnel, including its Commanding Officer Colonel Viplav Tripathi, his wife and son.
