Four suspected militants of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), a Manipur based outfit, have been arrested from Chandrapur here, police said today.

Acting on a tip off, Tripura police launched a search operation at a motor stand at Chandrapur yesterday and
arrested the four Manipuri youths suspected to be members of PLA, DIG Police Control, Nepal Das told PTI.

During preliminary interrogation the militants revealed that they had gone to Srimangal in Bangladesh to attend a
religious function two months ago and were now returning, Das said.

In July last year, Tripura police had arrested seven militants of the Manipur based People's United Liberation
Front (PULF), including its chief Mohammad Abdur Rahman and his wife, from here on way to Manipur from Bangladesh.
