Imphal, Jan 2:

At least seven security forces were injured in an attack by armed Kuki militants in the border town of Moreh in Tengnoupal district on Tuesday morning. Four personnel from the Manipur Police and one from the Border Security Forces were airlifted and admitted to the Regional Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) for medical treatment.
Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh personally visited the casualty ward at RIMS to check on the well-being of the injured security personnel. He stated that it has been proven that Kuki terrorists are using sophisticated weapons.
After visiting the injured personnel, N Biren Singh expressed his concern about the incident. He stated, “Four police personnel from the state police were injured, fortunately not with serious injuries. The bullets penetrated even the bulletproof vehicles, causing injuries to the security personnel. It has been proven that Kuki terrorists are using sophisticated weapons.”
He further added, “We have seen videos leaked from the militants and terrorist groups. They were using sophisticated weapons. However, as the government, both state and central forces are actively countering these threats. Currently, extensive combing and search operations are underway, with reinforcements dispatched. We suspect the involvement of foreign mercenaries from the Myanmar side. It is our commitment to the people of the state and the nation that we will not succumb to such threats and pressure. We are determined to take all necessary measures to counter terrorist activities.”
When asked about the possibility of abrogating the Suspension of Operation, the Chief Minister responded, “I can’t say that.”
The injured personnel were airlifted and safely transported to Imphal International Airport before being taken to RIMS, where they arrived at 11:30 am. The injured individuals include Maibam Thoiba, 32, from Yairipok Top; Chabungbam Herojit, 38, from Kadompokpi Mayai Leikai; Kamei Ganhemlung, 40, from Ragailong; and Mangsatabam Premkumar, 35, from Luwangsangbam—all of whom are Manipur Police commandos. The injured Border Security Forces (BSF) personnel has been identified as Rabindra Singh, 48, from Rajasthan.
State Ministers Govindas Konthoujam, Heikham Dingo, Yumnam Khemchand, former Minister Oinam Lukhoi Singh, and State BJP President Adhikarimayum Sharda Devi accompanied the Chief Minister during his visit to the injured personnel.
Since May 3, 2023, Manipur has been plagued by widespread violence, resulting in over 200 deaths, the displacement of over 60,000 people, and the destruction of thousands of homes. Despite the hopes for peace and prosperity in 2024, the threat of violence continues to loom over the state. The Manipur Government has struggled to maintain law and order, further exacerbating the challenges faced by its residents. It is crucial for effective measures to be taken to quell the escalating violence and restore stability, a pressing concern for both the government and the people of Manipur.
