Top Maoist Communist Party Manipur (MCPM) leader Sapamcha Kangleipal alias Chiranglen alias Sarat on Sunday was brought back to Manipur by the state police.

Chiranglen along with two others were arrested from Patna a few days back.

Chiranglen was arrested after 11 years he escaped from the custody of Manipur government.

The MCPM leader was arrested by a joint team of Manipur police and Patna police on last Thursday (August 8) along with two leaders of the Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP)- People’s War Group (PWG).

The leaders are identified as Wahengbam Thoi Luwang alias Thawai Lakpa of Wabagai Terapishak and Kangabam Roshan of Brahmapur Thangapat Mapal.

The trio was brought to Imphal after Manipur police took transit remand for five days from Patna court.
