Imphal, May 31:

The floods in Manipur have claimed two more lives, bringing the death toll to five. Today, one person died while attempting to flush out floodwater from his home, while another drowned in the Imphal River yesterday.
The first incident occurred around 10 am today at Keishamthong Thangjam Leirak, Imphal West. Ingudam Nitai Singh, identified as the deceased, was trying to prevent floodwater from entering their house when tragedy struck. While using a motor to flush out the water, he encountered a fatal accident due to a short circuit, resulting in electrocution. Singh, who had a pacemaker installed in his heart due to prior heart issues, succumbed to the shock.
Witnessing her husband’s collapse, Ingudam Ongbi Geetarani rushed to his aid. In a desperate attempt to help him, she too was electrocuted in the process. She now lies in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of an advanced hospital, battling for her life.
