Imphal, Sept 14: At least 2 student sustained injuries after police fired tear gas shells while trying to disperse the students’ protest rally at Kwakeithel Junction today demanding immediate implementation of Inner Line Permit System (ILPS) in the state without any condition.
Large number of students of Imphal College began the protest rally from the college campus at around 1:30 pm under the initiative of JCILPS Students’ Wing which were later joined by students of MECI and local Meira Paibis of Kwakeithel area at Kwakeithel Junction along Imphal Tiddim Road.
The Students marched towards Keisampat Junction where they were prevented by a strong team of Manipur Police at Kwakeithel area blocking the protestors from proceeding further.
The agitating students along with local meira paibis confronted the police team for a while saying that the demand is for all the people of the state including the police personnel who should be supporting them instead of intervening in their peaceful protest.
The student protestors expressed disappointment over the police in-charge who failed to allow their march as per a prior agreement with them for marching upto Keisampat Junction and taking a u-turn till their college premises.
The student protestors began shouting slogans demanding immediate implementation of ILPS in the state for the protection of the indigenous people of the state.
Unable to control the protestors, the police charged on the protestors using batons, mob bombs and fired several rounds of tear gas shells to disperse the student agitators.
The students’ agitators also pelted stones and even used sling bullet towards the police personnel.
Local meira paibis of Kwakeithel and women vendors of Kwakeithel also joined the students’ protest after seeing the police excess.
One student of Imphal college sustained injury after being hit by a tear gas shell on the chest and another student of MECI suffered injury in the mob rush. They have been taken to RIMS for treatment.
The irate students then nurn the BJP flags erected at the road median to welcome the BJP Natl. President Amit Shah as they were denied from submitting their protest. The students also burn tyres at Kwakeithel area to prevent vehicular movement, however police extinguished the fire and drive  away the protestors.
