He was previously arrested in 2021 by Longding police and security forces on charges of possession of arms. Sources indicate that Wangsu, along with other K-YA cadres, was consistently demanding extortion under the instructions of senior NSCN (K-YA) leaders - self-styled Brig. Peyong Konyak, Self Styled Col. Botai Wangsu and Self Styled Capt Panchin Wangsu.
