Manipur unit of BJP on Friday stated that R K Meghen alias Sanaiyaima, chairman of the major insurgent outfit United National Liberation Front (UNLF), who was reported to have been arrested from Motihari district of Bihar on November 30, should be brought back to Manipur for trial.

The statement said, "the news of arrest of Meghen from Bihar ended what it called the 'drama of concealment' of the top insurgent leader for over two months and wanted a fair trial at a court of law."

Although there has not been a single official line about the arrest of Meghen, media reports had earlier said he was arrested from Dhaka in Bangladesh on September 29 by a joint intelligence team of India and Bangladesh while he was travelling in a car.

The reports had said that Meghen was being kept at a house at Mehrouli area under the supervision of the union home ministry and was being pressurised to hold peace talks with the Centre which he steadfastly refused.
