Kangujam Kanarjit, also known as Dr. KK Singh, father of teen climate activist from Manipur Licypriya Kungujam has been arrested in Delhi on Monday morning for forgery and cheating.
He has been collecting funds from many national and international students in the name of International Youth Committee (IYC).
As per the police report, Kanarjit has been arrested on the basis of a criminal case (No 176/2015) under Sections 420 (Fraud), 324 (Assault) and 406 (Criminal breach of trust) and efforts are on to bring him back to Manipur.
As per the report the arrest has been carried out in a complaint by a Nepal student who has alleged that Kanarjit took money from him in 2018 for an international conference that never took place and refunds were never issued.
Kangujam Kanarjit who is reportedly a self-proclaimed youth leader is accused of collected funds and fees from national and international students in the name of organising international youth committee meets, which never took place, collecting funds for earthquake victims that never reached their beneficiaries. He is also accused of forging documents and signatures.
His daughter, self-proclaimed climate activist LicyPriya calls herself the Greta Thunberg of India and she is also making people fool by saying that she has been invited to UNO for a speech. But later, after an investigation by Imphal Free Press, it was confirmed by UN officials that she was not invited.
