Five militants of banned People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak-Progressive (PREPAK-P) have surrendered before police in Manipur.

The militants identified as Santosh Bahadur (27), Sorokhaibam Ibomcha (38), Khundrakpam Ajay (24), Takhelambam Umajit (21) and Athoi Maring (24) crossed the international border on Saturday and laid down arms comprising five AK 47 rifles, 15 magazines and 375 rounds of ammunition before police commandos at the border town of Moreh, about 125 km from Imphal, the police said.

The militants came to the border town from their camp at Nunglet in Upper Myanmar after developing contact with an ’intermediary’, the police said.

They would be rehabilitated, the police said.

Over 300 insurgents of different outfits have surrendered to law-enforcing agencies in Manipur this year.

The militants have been handed over to Imphal West district police station for necessary action, the police said.
