Mizoram Police has arrested another person in the conspiracy to assassinate Chief Minister Zoramthanga.

Earlier, the police arrested 37 year old Rodinliana alias Apuia Tochhwang for threatening to kill the Mizoram Chief Minister if he does not resign within three months. Today police also arrested Chanchinmawia who was allegedly in touch with Rodinliana and had reportedly held discussions on procuring weapons to carry out the assassination. Chanchinmawia was on Facebook with the name of CC Azyu and had also made threatening remarks against Mamit constituency MLA H. Lalzirliana. Yesterday night, police picked him up from Lunglei.

Rodinliana in a social media post shared on various Facebook groups, accused Zoramthanga of usurping the state’s annual budget for personal gains. In the social media post, the accused also claimed that he had hired a sniper to assassinate CM Zoramthanga. Cybercrime police probed the fake account by the name of Thingtlang Pa and traced Rodinliana and arrested him.

Noteworthy here is that Rodinliana had earlier been arrested in 2018 for writing a threatening letter to former Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla.
