‘Militants' arrested

Four alleged members of a Manipur-based banned organisation have been arrested by the Special Cell of Delhi Police on charges of extortion.

They were arrested at Rajouri Garden in West Delhi following a tip-off that they were allegedly associated with a banned outfit and were targeting various persons, including political leaders and officials, to extort money. They would allegedly issue threats to eliminate the person, demanding protection money. Senior police officers remained tight-lipped over the arrests stating that a hunt for the other members of the organisation was under way.
