Imphal, Jan 3 (PTI): Newspapers have not hit the stands in Manipur since December 30 due to a collective decision taken by the State's journalists to protest against the arrest of a local editor for allegedly having links with a militant outfit.

Official sources said the editor of a vernacular daily, A Mobi, was arrested on December 29 for alleged links with militant outfit Kangleipak Communist Party-Tabungba group (KCP-T).

A spokesperson of the All Manipur Working Journalists' Union (AMWJU) said Mobi, the vice-president of AMWJU, was entrusted to contact militant outfits to ensure that they did not disturb media houses and allowed them to function smoothly. He said while a faction of a militant outfit would want their statement to be published, another would hold out threats against its publication.
