Imphal: A Kuki militant was killed in a factional fight in interior Seichang village in Senapati district of Manipur, police sources said Wednesday.
The Kuki National Front-President (KNF-P) ultra was killed in the fight with Kuki National Army (KNA) activists in the thick valley area at Seichang yesterday.
The body was taken to nearby Kangpokpi hospital for post-mortem.
There have been frequent clashes between the two sides in the past few months.
While the KNF-P wanted to form a `Kuki state` under Indian constitution by carving out all Kuki-inhabited areas of Manipur, KNA wanted all Kuki-inhabited areas of Manipur and Myanmar to form what they call `Kukiland,` sources said.
