Thousands of women armed with bare hands today thronged at Keinou and Irengband area in Bisnupur district and dare the Indian army convoy while defending the villages in the adjoining areas of Bishnupur and Kongpokpi districts today.
A convoy of the Gorkha Regiment who came in two trucks was surrounded by a large number of irate women bare hands at Bungte Chiru Village area in the adjoining area of Kangpokpi and Bishnupur district today afternoon, suspected of supporting the armed Kuki militants whom the women were preparing to defend with just lathis in their hands.

Women folk have lost trust to the Indian Security forces particularly the Assam rifles and the Gorkha regiment as they are often seen siding the armed Kuki militants.
“At around 7 am today I heard some gunshots from the Tingkhakhullen area”, a woman told this reporter. “Then we were told that the armed Kuki militants are preparing for an attack on villages at close proximity”, she added.
