Silchar, July 26: Ngur Sunthang Ngurte, former chairman of Barak Valley Hill Tribes Development Council, whom the police was in search of in connection with the killing of Babul Rongmei, was arrested this morning at around 8 am from his residence at Hmarkhawlein in Lakhipur subdivision.

It is to be recalled that Babul Rongmei, chairman of the council, was killed on July 10 at his Sabashpur residence near Silchar Medical College and Hospital by an assailant identified as Blesson Golmei, self-styled second Lieutenent of NSCN (K) along with his two accomplices. While Blesson was nearly lynched to death, his two accomplices who are yet to be identified made their escape.

Just after the killing of Babul, Alimai Kamei, a former member of the council was arrested from his Fulertal house. When a police team led by SDPO of Lakhipur KK Barua went in search of Ngur Sunthang Ngurte, he was not present at his residence. Subsequently, two persons, identified as Hrishikesh Das and Saikat Paul Chowdhury were arrested from different areas of Silchar. While the former was the owner of a SIM card shop, the other produced fake documents to buy the SIM which was used by the assailant in his mobile set.

All three, Alimai Kamei, Hrishikesh Das and Saikat Paul Chowdhury were later sent to jail. On specific information that Ngur Sunthang Ngurte was at his home, a police party in plain clothes led by sub inspector, Lakhipur Police Station, Gitesh Bhattacharjee surrounded his residence and took him into custody. He was handed over to Ghungoor Police Outpost near here for interrogation. He was arrested with reference to case no. 1094/2011 U/S 448,302,34 (IPC), R/W 25 (1B) Arms Act on the basis of the FIR filed by the wife of Babul Rongmei, Themlu Rongmei, on July 11, 2011.
