Imphal: A 60-year old village chief was shot dead at his house by some gunmen in Manipur`s interior Churachandpur district bordering with Myanmar and Mizoram, a delayed official report said here on Sunday.

The gunmen barged into the house of Henkholal Haokip at S Nabil village under Moirang police station on Friday night and shot him dead from point blank range.

Haokip`s body was handed over to his family members after postmortem.

His eldest son Nehlenlal alleged that a former MLA and his associates were behind the murder.

The ex-MLA allegedly had been pressurising the family to hand over some village lands to a group of people of his choice.
