Manipuri Muslims in al-Qaida camps

Manipur Police is verifying an worrysome news about Manipuri Muslim approximately youths getting training in Al Qaida camps. The youths belong to Imphal East, Thoubal and Chandel districts.

Manipur director general of police M K Das said the intelligence report is yet to be officially verified and that the security forces have so far not found any concrete evidence of the presence of any al-Qaida operatives in the state. However, the police have been on a sharp vigil since they received the report, he added. “We will take all-out action once the intelligence inputs are corroborated,” the state police chief said.

The DGP said the recent arrest of two Saudi Arabian nationals from Tengnoupal in Chandel district by the Assam Rifles and the subsequent probe conducted by the NIAto ascertain whether they have links with al-Qaida is a development that could help verify the intelligence inputs. Assam Rifles soldiers, who are guarding the porous India-Myanmar border along the Manipur sector, nabbed two Saudi Arabia nationals from Chandel when they were travelling in a taxi towards the border town of Moreh in June this year, a source said.
