Protest staged against attack to Police officer’s residence

Imphal, Feb 28:

In response to the alarming gun attack that ravaged the residence of Additional SP (Operations) Moirangthem Amit, causing extensive property damage, Meira Paibis from Wangkhei Tokpam Leikai, Nandeibam Leikai, and Thangjam Leikai have rallied together, staging a poignant sit-in protest.
Expressing profound concern and condemnation, a representative of the Meira Paibis, addressing media persons, implored those behind the attack to refrain from such heinous acts within residential areas. She recounted the harrowing aftermath of the incident, highlighting how it had instilled fear and panic among the elderly, children, and the infirm, with reports of one young woman collapsing due to the terror induced. Urging for restraint and civility, she vehemently appealed to all parties involved to spare residential areas from such violence.
Commenting on the escalating tension resembling a state of war in Manipur, she underscored the unprecedented nature of the current situation, lamenting the profound impact it has had on the lives of the populace. She passionately called upon the government to take decisive measures to quell the unrest and restore peace and stability to the region.
Media reports have indicated that following the gun attack, which left properties, including vehicles, in ruins, the perpetrators proceeded to abduct Amit. However, swift action by the Manipur Police, as confirmed in an official statement, led to the successful rescue of the additional superintendent of police, thanks to a well-coordinated operation involving law enforcement agencies and security forces.
Tensions continue to grip Manipur in the aftermath of the recent attack, as a portion of police commandos takes a significant stance by laying down their arms. The arms down agitation stems from the revelation that they were not authorized to retaliate during the gun assault, prompting frustration and disillusionment among the ranks.
