Guwahati: A man identified as Satthang Kipgen of Manipur’s Kangpokpi district, presumed to be dead in the ongoing violence, returned home alive after four days on Tuesday.
Kipgen (50), the dead man, later revealed that he had lost his way after consuming a lot of alcohol. He was found alive by a team of Manipur police near Kangpokpi’s Longjang village on Tuesday.

The Committee of Tribal Unity (COTU) had alleged that Kipgen was abducted by armed miscreants on September 30 and had called a shutdown on the National Highway 37 in protest.
