IMPHAL, Dec 30: No newspaper was published in Manipur today in protest against the arrest of an editor of a vernacular daily for alleged militant links.

Editor of ”Sanaleibak” A Mobi was arrested last night for his alleged connection with militant outfit Kangleipak Communist Party-Tabungba group (KCP-T). Two mobile phones and Rs 50,000 in cash seized from him, police said.

Stating that Mobi had no connection with militants, the All Manipur Working Journalists” Union (AMWJU), condemned his arrest and demanded his immediate release.

Mobi is the vice-president of AMWJU.

Earlier, six editors of local dailies were called by a militant outfit for a ”meeting” and kept in custody for some days. This does not mean that the editors had connection with the militant outfit, the spokesman said.
