The Hon’ble HM of Manipur is requested to take up some measures to defuse the communal tension at Moreh though the situation is brought under control. Seize unauthorized firearms from the communities residing in and around Moreh. Arms licence holders be directed to deposit their arms and ammunition to the Officer-in-Charge of the concerned Police Station or to the designated officer. It may be helpful to control the situation.
