The CBI has secured the transit remand of a Manipur resident for his production in a Guwahati court in connection with an arms looting case in Manipur.
Moirangthem Anand Singh, 45, had been arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) from Imphal on September 22 for allegedly conspiring with Myanmar-based insurgent outfits to wage a war against India by “exploiting the current ethnic unrest in Manipur”.
Singh’s transit remand had been granted by a Delhi court on October 20.
Singh was arrested by police on September 16 for allegedly possessing arms. He secured bail, following which the NIA arrested him and lodged him in Delhi’s Tihar jail.
The CBI now wants him in connection with the arms robbery.
Over 5,000 arms and ammunition were looted from police stations and armories in Manipur.
