Imphal: An IRB Havildar was beaten to death
allegedly by eight of his subordinates in their barrack at
Lamphel in Imphal West district, police said on Tuesday.

The Havildar of First Indian Reserve Battalion (IRB),
identified as Oinam Inaotomba, was attacked and killed after
an altercation with the eight jawans over a missing SLR last
night.

Police arrested all the eight IRB personnel.

A police investigation has revealed that the gun had been
earlier deposited to the IRB headquarters in Churachandpur. A
communication gap had shown the SLR missing at the Lamphel
barrack.

The Havildar was the escort commander of a former
minister V Hangkhalian.
