After a woman-led mob in Manipur stops the army, 12 KYKL militants were freed

Security forces launched a search operation and apprehended 12 Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL) cadres along with arms, ammunition and war-like stores, in Imphal on Sunday morning.

The search operation was carried out acting on specific intelligence in Itham village (6km east of Andro) in Imphal east.

Mob of approximately 1,200-1,500 people led by women & the local leader immediately surrounded the target area and prevented security forces from going ahead with the operation.

Keeping in view the sensitivity of use of force against the mob led by women and likely casualties due to such action, decision was taken to hand over all 12 cadres to the local leader.
