So the NSA was slapped as “an alternative preventive measure” against the 33-year-old man.

The court had also directed the Thoubal Police Station to return the passport so that he could “apply for extension of visa” to enable him to stay in Manipur till the disposal of the case.

Naing was arrested by the police from the gate of Imphal International Airport in August last year for his alleged involvement in supplying drugs in Manipur. (PTI)
