Imphal, June 9:

The Manipur Chief Minister’s Office has directed the police department to provide a report by June 11 detailing the measures taken in response to suspected militant activity and recent violence in the Jiribam district, and to assess whether these actions were sufficient.
This directive follows a January 15 order from the Chief Minister’s Office, instructing the Director General of Police to implement all requisite security protocols to avert any untoward incidents and address threats from approximately 200 armed suspected militants who had relocated from Churachandpur to Phaitol Village, encompassing the Old and New Kaiphundai areas in the Tamenglong district, adjacent to Jiribam.
On Sunday, the situation in Jiribam district was reported as “tense” but stable, after suspected militants torched two police outposts and at least 70 houses in a new wave of violence, according to police.
Over 70 houses were torched in the villages of Lamtai Khunou, Dibong Khunou, Nunkhal, and Begra. Authorities are actively monitoring social media activity to identify posts that could incite communal tensions and urge the public to abstain from disseminating unverified information.
Violence erupted in Jiribam on Thursday evening after suspected militants killed 59-year-old Soibam Saratkumar Singh, who had gone missing on June 6 while visiting his farm. His body was later discovered with wounds inflicted by a sharp object, according to an official. In response, over 70 state police commandos were airlifted from Imphal to Jiribam to support local security forces in their operations against the militants.
Approximately 239 Meitei individuals, mainly women and children, were evacuated from the peripheral areas of Jiribam on Friday and relocated to a newly established relief camp at a multi-sports complex in the district, officials reported.
Additionally, the state government has transferred Jiribam SP A Ghanashyam Sharma to the position of Additional Director at the Manipur Police Training College, while M Pradip, Director MPTC as Senior SP Jiribam, as per an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms. Also, former OC of Jiribam PS, Inspector S Ibotombi Singh, who is currently serving in CID (Security), has been reinstated as OC Jiribam PS. Meanwhile, OC Jiribam PS H Devenkishore Singh has been transferred to CID (Security).
