IMPHAL: The United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent (ULFA-I) has mourned the accidental deaths of the members of the People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK), which is an armed insurgent group in Manipur demanding a separate and independent homeland.
The deceased rebels have been identified as Khuujan Ratan, Mayengbam Joyce, and RK Ramananda.
ULFA(I) spokesperson Rumel Axom said, “It is not only that I have lost my counterpart with his able officers in the freedom struggle for the WESEA region, but Manipur has also lost indomitable revolutionary sons of the soil.”
“History will remember them and the future generations should be inspired to fulfill their incomplete task of restoration of the stolen Sovereignty of Manipur,” he added.
In the condolence messages, he wrote, “With a heavy heart on behalf of ULFA-I, I am offering our sincere and deep condolences to all the office bearers and cadres of People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak and the citizens of Manipur including their families at the accidental deaths of chairman Khuujan Ratan, general secretary Mayengbam Joyce and GSO1 RK Ramananda.”
Three rebel leaders of PREPAK were killed in a road accident on Sunday in an undisclosed forest area.
