New Delhi: A self-styled health minister-cum-political advisor of NSCN-Khaplang group has been arrested in the national capital, police said on Tuesday.

Ngamsinlung Panmei was arrested from Lodi Colony area on Monday where he had gone to visit one of his contacts.


Delhi Police were looking for Panmei after getting information from Manipur Police about his presence in the capital.

“Five mobile phones, seven SIM cards and one laptop, used for communicating with members of NSCN-K and its self-styled chairman Khaplang, were seized from the arrested militant,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Rajiv Ranjan.

Police said Panmei, who joined the terrorist outfit in 1997, was hiding in Mahipalpur in south Delhi.

“Panmei was assigned the task of collection of military intelligence in Zeliangrong area. He became very close to the NSCN-K chairman S.S. Khaplang, who is presently in Myanmar,” the official said.

“He met Khaplang for the first time in 1998 in Myanmar. Khaplang was impressed by


his performance and he was assigned the specific task to raise funds and recruit cadres by motivating and brainwashing gullible youth,” the official said.

Panmei was given the so-called rank of ‘captain’ and was appointed ‘chairman’ of Zeliangrong region in 2001.

Later, he was promoted to the rank of ‘major’ and then ‘Deputy Home Minister’.

Presently, Panmei was the self-styled ‘health minister’ and ‘political advisor’ of the council of NSCN-K.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, who is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month, said on Sunday that it was a difficult process to decide whether to undergo a third right-knee surgery after having two last year. But following Wimbledon, where he was "really unhappy" with his performance in reaching the quarterfinals, Federer opted to go through with it.

Federer, who made a late decision to attend this year's Laver Cup in Boston -- a tournament held between teams from Europe and the rest of the world -- said on the sidelines of the event that the recovery and rehabilitation are "going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year". "The reception I've received, everybody is so upbeat that I'm here. They wish me all the best and they don't even see the crutches. They just want me to be good again and enjoy the weekend," Federer said in an interview for the event with former world No. 1 Jim Courier.

"I've seen some incredible tennis, some great matches and it's been wonderful. I'm really happy I made the trip," the winner of 20 majors was quoted as saying by atptour.com. On why he opted for a third surgery, the tennis ace said, "I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end... too much is too much. Now I've just got to take it step by step," Federer said.
