Key leader of Naga insurgent outfit NSCN(K) arrested by Delhi Police in Delhi


Delhi Police today claimed to have arrested a key leader of Naga insurgent outfit NSCN(K) in south Delhi’s Lodhi Road area, where he had come to meet an associate.

The arrested was identified Panmei, 50, who belongs to Peren district of Nagaland. He claims to be member of the so called “government-in-exile” established by the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland unit led by SS Khaplang, said a senior police official.
