Agartala: Four suspected militants of the
People`s Liberation Army (PLA), a Manipur based outfit, have
been arrested from Chandrapur here, police said on Saturday.

Acting on a tip off, Tripura police launched a search
operation at a motor stand at Chandrapur yesterday and
arrested the four Manipuri youths suspected to be members of
PLA, DIG Police Control, Nepal Das said.

During preliminary interrogation the militants revealed
that they had gone to Srimangal in Bangladesh to attend a
religious function two months ago and were now returning, Das
said.

In July last year, Tripura police had arrested seven
militants of the Manipur based People`s United Liberation
Front (PULF), including its chief Mohammad Abdur Rahman and
his wife, from here on way to Manipur from Bangladesh.
