Kangleipak Communist Party (People's War Group) chief Laishram Ranjit Meitei, 45, Khumanthem Naobicha Singh, 36, and Thoidam Chaothoi, 30, were arrested from near the Inter-State Bus Terminus in north Delhi on Sunday evening, Deputy Commissioner of Police Pramod Kushwah said.

A laptop, a tablet, two mobile phones and extortion letters were seized from the men who the police said were looking for a safe hideout in Delhi after their hideout on the India-Nepal border was busted by security forces.

"They target schools, businessmen and owners of oil tankers to extort money for funding their terror activities," the officer said.

Police said Meitei had revealed during questioning his involvement in terror activities and other crimes in Manipur.

He was earlier arrested by Manipur Police but was on the run for the past five years, during which he stayed in Nepal for three years, police said.

In January, self-styled KCP convener Ranjjet Singh Porai was held in Delhi.

Kushwah said they were probing the real motive of the three arrested militants for visiting Delhi.
