Manipur Violence: CBI Presents Charge-Sheet Against Five in Arms Loot Case


The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken a significant step in addressing the arms loot case in Manipur by filing a charge-sheet against five individuals. This development comes in the wake of the unfortunate incident where arms and ammunition were looted from Manipur police personnel in May of the previous year.

Unveiling the Charge-Sheet

In a crucial development, the CBI submitted the charge sheet on Wednesday, January 17, before the court of Kamrup-Metro Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) in Guwahati, Assam. This move marks a significant step forward in the pursuit of justice and accountability related to the Manipur arms loot case.

The arms loot incident occurred on May 4, 2023, at the Manipur Police Training College (MPTC) located in Pangei, Imphal. A mob, as detailed in the FIR, stormed into the MPTC Pangei complex during the midst of an ethnic conflict in Manipur. The perpetrators seized a substantial quantity of arms and ammunition from the MPTC armory, causing alarm and posing a serious threat to public safety.

Legal Proceedings

The CBI’s charge sheet includes five accused individuals who played roles in the orchestration of the arms loot. This legal move is a crucial step towards bringing the perpetrators to justice and ensuring that those involved face the consequences of their actions. By filing the charge sheet, the CBI is sending a clear message that acts threatening public safety and security will be met with determined legal action.

Ongoing Commitment to Justice

The CBI’s commitment to resolving the Manipur arms loot case is evident in the meticulous preparation of the charge sheet. The investigative efforts aim to not only bring the accused to justice but also to send a deterrent message against such activities in the future.
