Nagaland Home Minister resigns

Nagaland Home Minister Imkong L Imchen resigned from the Council of Ministers after he was arrested for allegedly carrying Rs 1.10 crore in cash and arms and ammunition in a vehicle in Wokha district in the poll-bound state.

Imchen submitted his resignation letter to CM Neiphiu Rio late Monday night, press secretary to the Chief Minister Abu Metha said on Tuesday. According to Mehta, Imchen in his resignation letter said the "Assam Rifles flying squad intercepted his motorcade while coming from Kohima" and the seized amount of Rs 1.10 crore was received from NPF's central office for election purpose.

When contacted, Imchen said, "I was totally unaware of the arms and ammunition seized along with cash."
