Warrants against Army personnel

Imphal: The Duty Magistrate has issued nonbailable warrants for an Army captain and 50 other Army personnel for allegedly barging into the Yurembam power station and forcing the staff to cut off power supply to most parts of the State on November 2.

The warrants were issued following a case filed by the Manipur Chief Secretary, Jarnail Singh. The State Government has taken up a criminal case for violating the Essential Services Maintenance Act.

Official sources said the civil and police officials of the State convened a meeting to discuss the situation and most officials were peeved with the `high-handedness' of the Army personnel posted in Manipur and described the act of Army as `uncivilised.'

It was alleged that even the Chief Secretary was badly treated by Captain Pillai of the Military Engineering Services of 57 Mountain Division, Leimakhong.

The Superintendent of Police of Imphal West has been instructed to arrest all the Army personnel. — UNI
