On the evening of 27 November, about six casually dressed policemen in a few vehicles arrived at the two-storey home of a journalist with a link news arrange in Manipur, a sloping north-eastern state on the outskirt with Myanmar (Burma).
The policemen told Kishorechandra Wangkhem, 39, that the city’s police boss needed to have a word with him.
“Nothing will occur, don’t stress,” Mr Wangkhem’s significant other, Ranjita Elangbam, recollects a policeman letting them know.
Mr Wangkhem was preparing to shower and join his significant other and two little girls, matured five and one, for lunch. He asked whether he could call his legal advisor. They denied his demand, requesting that he prepare rapidly and left with him in five minutes.
Ms Elangbam and her sibling tailed them in a different vehicle.
At the police headquarters, they hung tight for about five hours while Mr Wangkhem was addressed. As the early night chill set in, Ms Elangbam went home to get some warm garments. When she returned she was informed that her significant other had been removed to a high security jail on the edges of the state capital, Imphal.
“I was stunned. After at first declining to meet us, the main reviewer of the police headquarters disclosed to us that my significant other had been confined. They instructed us to get some warm garments and covers for him. It was just [after reading] the following day’s papers that we discovered why he had been held,” Ms Elangbam, a word related advisor, let me know.
