A top leader of a Manipur-based banned terrorist organisation was arrested and arms and ammunition seized from his possession by the Special Task Force (STF) of Kolkata Police, a senior officer said Monday.

Amon Nelson Singh alias Chingkhei Khuman alias Maheikhomba Meitei, 28, was arrested Sunday in connection with a dacoity incident in the citys Jodhpur Park last year, the officer said.

"He is a self-proclaimed chairman of Kangleipak Communist Party (Military Council Progressive) and has been arrested under the Arms Act,"  the officer said.

One 9 mm pistol, 3 ammunition and two 7 mm pistols were also seized from his possession, the IPS officer said.
